Day 5 of Holiday Yoga-Star Pose

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!

Today’s Pose is STAR POSE or 5 Pointed Star.

STAR POSE pose helps strengthen and tone leg muscles and open up your hips and chest. It is a great heart opener and helps you to feel centered and relaxed.

Imagine yourself like a SHINING STAR, radiating your energy out from your heart center and illuminating everything all around you.

Shooting Star Pose

Follow these simple steps to do STAR POSE:

  1. Begin with the Mountain Pose or Tadasana
  2. Step your right foot out so that your legs are more than hip distance apart with both your feet parallel to each other.
  3. As you breathe in, raise your arms to the sides in line with your shoulders and extend them out with the palms facing forward.
  4. Keep your chest and heart open as you continue to take long, deep breaths.
  5. Press your feet firmly into the floor and extend the crown of your head towards the ceiling.
  6. Relax your neck and look directly ahead.
  7. With each breath, stretch out at your sides through your fingertips, as if you are trying to touch the side walls.
  8. Hold this posture for thirty seconds and feel your body radiating out like a star in five different directions.
  9. Slowly return back to Mountain Pose.

Here is Lucinda wishing on a shooting star.

Wishing you and your family a wonderful Holidays! May all your dreams come true!

Love,
