Day 7: Supine knees to chest
We are in the home stretch now! I hope these poses have given you some relaxation as you've prepared for the holiday season. I've been busy shopping, wrapping, baking, and shopping and baking some more. It is a little tougher to fit all the sneaky shopping and wrapping in now that I'm working and I can't be home while the kids are off at school. That means lots of late nights playing Santa's helper! It will all be worth it to see their faces on Christmas morning!
Lie on your back with your legs and arms extended.
Exhale as you draw both knees to your chest. Clasp your hands around them. If it is possible, wrap your forearms over your shins and clasp each elbow with the opposite hand.
Keep your back flat on the mat. Relax your shoulder blades down.
Draw your tailbone toward the mat, lengthening your spine.
If it feels good, gently rock backward and forward or side-to-side for a spinal massage.
Hold for up to one minute. Keep your breath smooth and even.
Relieves abdominal bloating, discomfort and indigestion.
