Simple Sequence to Balance Vata

Cow-Cat-Child's Pose Sequence to Balance Vata

  • Come to your hands and knees: position your knees under your hips with your toes pointing straight back behind you; place your hands shoulder-width apart, a little in front of your shoulders.
  • Spread your fingers and your palms. Root the base of each finger down and ground through each finger print.
  • Press the earth away as you ground your hands and fingers so you have a feeling of length and engagement through the arms.
  • Notice the sturdy base of your hands and knees/shins/feet.
Find the rhythm of your breath and begin to move:
1. Cow Pose: Inhale and tilt your pelvis forward, inviting an even backbend through your whole spine
2. Cat Pose: Exhale and tilt your pelvis backward, inviting your whole spine to round like a Halloween Cat.
3. Cow Pose: Inhale and tilt your pelvis forward, making that backbend.
4. Child's Pose: Exhale and drop your hips back onto your heels.

Let your head heavy on the ground or a blanket; let your hips heavy toward your heels. Breathe a full breath in and out. Invite your breath into the back of your body,

Inhale and come back into Cow Pose and repeat steps 1-4 at least two more times.

Notice with each Child's Pose if you can drop a little more into the earth and become a little more settled.
