Practice for Travel
≤60 min. Before and during travel can be stressful, and can bring lots of changes to our well being -- you may notice how the breath becomes contracted, hips and shoulders tighten, and our organs don't function as smoothly. This practice is designed to address some travel-related consequences. You will be engaged in simple movements to move the arms in such a way as to open the upper chest which addresses shallow breathing that often accompanies travel anxiety. Standing, seated, and supine poses are included, and if you have blocks and straps, you may want to use them. Notice that in the "straight leg" actions the knees are slightly bent -- this should facilitate engaged and stronger pelvic muscles.
