This month as we focus on gratitude at OWY we are featuring a pose that represents the attitude of gratitude in a very deep way - Anahatasana with Prayer-Hands. These lovely autumn shots of Mallory in the woods show her working into progressively deeper variations of Anahatasana.
1. Basic Variation - Forehead to the mat
2. Chin and Chest to the mat to deepen the heart-opening effect.3. Press into the fingers and lift the hands to deepen the shoulder stretch.4. Hands in prayer behind the heart center.5. Deepen the shoulder stretch with a boster.6. Further deepen the shoulder stretch with blocks.
Thank you Mallory Saunders for this lovely photo exploration of Anahata and its variations.
