Yoga for Stress
Photography by: Fran Gealer
(End your practice with this expansive and stress-releasing stretch.) Bring your legs slightly apart and, keeping your toes and knees pointing upward, extend your arms alongside your ears on the mat. From your belly, reach out evenly through the heels and balls of your feet, spread your toes, and stretch strongly up through your torso and out through your arms and fingers. Shine out through your heart with a spirit of celebration for the holidays. Then release, lower your arms to your sides (slightly away from your body), and relax completely here in Corpse Pose (Savasana) for 5 minutes.
