Build up support across the front of your pelvis so that you can lie down with both sides of the pelvis evenly dropping down into the bolster. Additional support under your chest and/or forehead may be the perfect finishing touch to soften your neck and shoulders so you can take slow, deep breaths and be able to enjoy the sensations of your hips opening as you release your body into gravity.

Do you love straps and want new ways to use them? Or are they a pain to set up for you or your students? This tutorial will set you straight and set you up to make straps easy and fun to use. Straps can give you stability in your joints as you deepen your stretch. They can provide resistance to press into to cultivate strength. You decide whether you want a strap to do the work for you or help you work more. So get your strap on and make good choices ;)
In this feel-good flow, we'll work on meeting your body where it is today. Moments of meditation, time to connect with your baby and let go of expectations about what you should be able to do so you can just be where you are. Hip, hamstring, shoulder, upper back and chest-opening will leave you feeling open and energized. If you don't have a bolster, a couch pillow will do the trick!
