Star of wonder, star of night
Guide us to thy perfect light
The perfect way to end our Yoga Advent Calendar on Christmas eve, with a guiding star.
May you all shine bright this Christmas.
Sit in Baddhakonasana (Bound Angle pose), with sit bones grounded, soles of the feet together and hands softly wrapping the toes
Gently draw the heels away from you slightly, allowing a little more space for the pelvis to tilt forward
Lean into the space in front of you, leading with the heart and slowly fold down allowing the elbows to bend out wide
Let your back round, rest the head (use a block or cushion if necessary) and soften into the fold
Take a moment for introspection and breathe
Hold for 30-60 seconds
Opening the hips and groins
Stretching the neck and back
Creating a sense of security
Calming the mind
