reaching for the sky

Pose instructions

  1. Breathe in and reach up high with an outstretched hand.
  2. Pretend that you are grabbing a piece of sunshine and pull the power into your solar plexus - your inner sun (the solar plexus is located between the chest and the navel).
  3. Exhale with a "hah" breath.
  4. Repeat with your other arm, alternating the reach with the left and right arms.

As you practice, increase the force of your breath. Can you work up to 1, then 2 minutes. Feel the power of the sun shining inside of you. You are filled with light!
