Almost a month ago now, I spoke at Ignite Fort Collins on a subject that I think is very important, Anorexia. Anorexia is sweeping across the nation in a tragic silent war taking the lives of children, teens and adults. Anorexia is not something to be glorified, but to be stopped in its tracks, through health, empowerment and living your life’s passion. In my talk, I dispel some myths of Anorexia while sharing my own story. Please watch and share with someone that this could help.
On a lighter note here is the second Asana of the month:
Reverse Sitting at Your Desk Pose/ Legs up a Wall Variation
*Increases Circulation *Prevents and Reduces Varicose Veins
*Rejuvenating and Energizing *Heart and Lung Opening
- Start by getting a yoga blanket or bolster and a block or pillow. (For the blanket fold 2x and then roll it up like a burrito.)
- While sitting sideways bring your tailbone as close to the wall as possible, lay back and lift legs up. If this doesn’t feel comfortable, scoot back 4-5 inches, alow a gentle bend in the knees.
- Place the blanket beneath the shoulder blades, allowing the heart and chest to lift up as arms drape open above the blanket with shoulders relaxed. (You can allow the head to rest on the floor or support the neck, by placing a block under the back of the head.)
