In the Moment with the Happy Baby on the Foam Roller!
Knees to Chest Yoga Pose on the foam roller.
Now, widen your knees as you reach up with your hands. Take your first three fingers and wrap them around your big toe.
Happy Baby Yoga Pose on the foam roller.
Once your fingers are securely wrapped around your big toes, play with the movement in your legs. Straighten one or both. Rock back and forth or side to side.
This is a happy, joyful pose and hopefully you can enjoy this way of being, just like a new baby.
You will want to notice where it feels good on your body as you roll around on the foam roller. This is a lovely pose with small movements and feels especially good on your lower back at the sacroiliac joint. If you have pain or discomfort in this area it just may make you feel better. If it does not, do not do this movement.
You may wish to affirm, "Life is Happy and Free like a baby!" "Joy surrounds me!" "I roll and play and focus on new life and energy!" Or you may wish to create your own mantra for joy!
As a completion to this body meditation, you may wish to relax, straighten and hold your legs up in the air for a few moments on the foam roller. Or you can do Legs Up the Wall Pose that I taught you in the August Issue of Body Moments. Hold this pose for a few minutes before exhaling your legs back down.
Regardless of where you body intuition leads you, I hope that love your foam roller as much as I do.
'May you feel joy and happiness when you relax and move like a baby, all shiny and new! May you always feel support from the Energy from above as you relax and renew in this moment with your body!'
