It’s “Workout and Worship Wednesday” with a quick YogaFaith Flow.
Listen to your body as you flow. Modify as needed.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” ~Philippians 4:6-7
✅Child’s Pose with Prayer Hands
✅Cows and Cats
✅Downward Facing Dog
✅Standing Forward Fold
✅Upward Salute/High Praise
Start in Child’s Pose. Bring knees wide and big toes to touch. Drape upper body between knees, using a block or pillow underneath you for comfort, as forehead touches the floor or pillow. Bring hands to prayer if it’s comfortable. Deeply inhale, feeling the chest expand. Breathe in His day … exhale the past. Chest falls towards the mat. Find your breath here, praising Him with each new inhale and exhale.
Place hands in front of you and make your way to hands and knees (Table Top) or all fours. Shoulders are aligned with wrists, and hips are aligned with knees. Inhale and exhale deeply here, feeling the breath flow through the midsection and filling your strong core. On your next inhale, bring the heart and gaze upwards to Cow pose. Press through the hands to lift the hips and create an arch in the back. Exhale to Cat pose – lifting the back, dropping the head gently, and tucking the pelvis. Inhale peace; exhale worry. Move back and forth between Cat and Cow at your pace, for as long as you like, deepening the breath with each inhale to Cow and exhale to Cat.
Curl the toes and send the tailbone towards the sky, finding your version of Down Dog. Press through your hands with straight arms and fingers wide. Hug shoulder blades into the back, lifting the ribs and engaging the core. Relax neck/head and straighten legs as much as possible. Breathe through any tension and modify this posture for your body. Inhale God confidence; exhale insecurity.
Walk feet to meet hands in a Forward Fold, bending knees as needed. Engage the leg muscles. Rest here and breathe. Allow head to hang, or place hands on quads, shins, or a yoga block for support.
Inhale to rise, lifting the torso, micro bend in the knees to protect lower back. Your core strength brings you to a standing position, hands lifted to High Praise/Upward Salute. Take a small backbend here if it feels good to your body.
Thank you, God, for this day. Amen.
