Find your roots underneath one foot and try to consciously touch and feel the ground beneath you.
No matter what we do, we are always connected with Earth most of our lives, attracted by a powerful force that we forget to sense.
Now grow beautiful and powerful braches: bend one knee and place the other foot on the standing leg, opening your hips.
Extend your arms first horizontally, then all the way up above your head.
It’s time now to reach for the sky: stretch your arms and reach up extending your entire body.
Loosen your rib cage. Make space for your breath and your heart to beat free and happy.
Find your center, forget your thoughts, let them flow and go. Just witness the process…
Enjoy this peace, this is where we are meant to be.

Enjoy this Sunset Yoga session with Holly Vernon and Paola Richard.
Release the tension and find balance at the beginning of your night dreaming time.
The Sun and Moon Breath is an ancient yoga technique that balances your mind and body. The moon breath (left nostril) calms your nervous system while the sun breath (right nostril) perks you up. It works wonders. Best tried while seated in a meditative and comfortable position.
1. Place your right thumb over your right nostril.
2. Close your mouth, and inhale in very deeply and very slowly through your left nostril, pause holding your breath for a couple of seconds.
3. Release your thumb and switch to covering your left nostril while exhaling steadily through your right nostril, then inhale and pause again.
4. Reverse and repeat several times. 2 inhales and 2 exhales makes one Sun moon Breath.
This will cause a physiological change in your body and brain— leaving you both revitalized and relaxed at the same time.
