Reaching to the Sky to Rest the Day

Benefits

Reaching to the Sky to Rest the Day aids in reducing stress and promoting relaxation. It’s useful for conditions such as ADHD, allergies, asthma, back problems, blood pressure issues, circulation, chronic fatigue syndrome, vitality, and, most importantly, at the end of the day–bringing grounding and coming back home to the earth.

The Movement:

  1. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, knees bent, arms to side with palms facing outwards.
  2. Inhale deeply, raising your arms above your head with palms facing each other as you straighten your legs.
  3. Stretch upwards as if trying to touch the sky.
  4. Your hands come together, intertwining your fingers.
  5. Exhale and slowly bring your arms back down [bringing your energy down towards the earth–the sun, the day your energy grounding and being settled.]
  6. Repeat several times, focusing on the breath and stretch.
  7. At the end, rest your hands and allow energy to continue to flow.
