|How cozy are these trees, draped in their blanket of snow
A light snow falls this morning
Tiny angel flakes sliding in from the west
I’m leaping, crouching, dancing about
Trying to catch these little buggers
Neighbors see this madwoman out there
Dancing with the crystals
And think, “Aww to be free, to catch a
Nugget on my tongue or warm mittens”.
It’s lovely from the inside too.
It just requires a little more stillness

Benefits:hip opener, lengthens spine along its natural curves, rejuvenates legs, brings circulation back to the heart, mild energizer.
Place 1 or 2 blankets next to wall so that your pelvis and upper body are laying comfortable on the blankets. Face the wall and bring the legs up the wall. Slide the feet down until knees are bent at 90 degrees (your pelvis may be a foot or so from the wall). Turn your toes out and rest your hands anywhere they are comfortable. Stay 5 to 10 minutes for full relaxation while energizing.
Belly Down with Hip Opener
Props: 2 blankets, neck roll or small pillow for head
Stack one or two blankets to the side folded in half. As you release to the floor, lengthen the body and then bend the leg at 90 degree angles to lay on the blankets to the side. Arms can come to goddess position, head turned to the side or stack hands as a pillow. For those with tight shoulders, extend arms by the sides of the body. When you need to turn the head, do so with a soft inhalation.
