Designed and performed by our inspiring Yogea teacher Ruth Rose Rae.
This Yogea routine offers a balanced blend of backbends, inversions, forward folds, hip openers, twists, core strengtheners and arm balances to help integrate all aspects of one’s personality. A fluid warm-up opens up the joints, tones the core and elongates the spine. Special emphasis goes to evening out both sides of the body by stretching laterally. A series of low lunges, standing forward bends, kneeling twists and seated hip openers make up for a well-rounded stimulation of all muscle groups, body parts and glands. Balancing positions alternate with reclining and semi-reclining heart openers, gluteus stretches with hamstring lengtheners to create a feeling of personal integrity and mental lucidity. Reclining twists and semi-inversions activate the pineal gland, flush toxins from the bloodstream and decompress the lower back to create an open, spacious and receptive body. A creative visualization wraps the sequence up integrating the physical, mental and vital aspects of one’s self.
