DAY 11- Ustrasana // Camel
What needs more love? 💕 .
Me. I need to give myself love and nurturing attention. I happily give love & energy full force without expectation or judgement...but not often to myself. I am driven, push myself and am critical of myself inside and out. Yes I accept myself, my body and who I am, take it or leave it, I'm authentic... When it comes to me, I think I can do better, am critical, expect perfection, pick apart things, and don't freely give myself love or praise. I will work being kind to me and openly give myself that dynamic, sparkle of light, love and energy I give others.
. . 🐫 open your heart 🐫
Ustrasana like a camel moving thru the desert requires stamina, endurance, and a commitment to inner awareness. Camel pose is a journey and not about the destination. This backbend opens the heart chakra, allowing energy to flow freely from the seat of your compassion and heart center. With an open heart you love others, love yourself, give love, and receive love.
Opening the heart center in Ustrasana, may cause a sense of vulnerability. It opens the chest and exposes a part of the body we actively protect, usually thru hunching the shoulders forward and rounding the upper spine. Find the breath, settle into your vulnerability, and let the mind go. Letting go into the openness of Camel Pose stimulates creativity and problem solving with the change in perspective.
Physically Camel increases flexibility in the spine, stimulates the nervous system, improves circulation and digestion, stimulates the thyroid, rejuvenates energy levels, and lowers blood pressure. Mentally it reduces anxiety and stress by increasing the flexibility in the spine and relieving tension in the neck, back, and shoulders. With an open body, you can open the mind.
