Support the torso on a rolled blanket or bolster positioned beneath and parallel to your spine. (Rest here for 3 to 5 minutes.)
Janu Sirsasana (Head-to-Knee Pose)

Side-Lying Savasana with A Twist
Find your way into this gentle twist using two pillows or a pillow and a bolster. Use a neck roll and eye mask for extra comfort.
Supported Corpse Pose
Practice diaphragmatic breathing for 3-5 minutes and then resume a gentle breath cycle by allowing the inhalation to softly enter and exhale for 5-8 counts. Take a pause for 3-5 seconds before your next inhale. Breathe in balance, calm, and peace and exhale judgement, expectation, and anything else that is not serving you. Be present and stay in the moment. Allow yourself this time to relax and renew. (Total time 10 to 15 minutes.)

Greetings from California! I’m bored at work so I decided to check out your site on my iphone during lunch break. I love the knowledge you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my cell phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, wonderful site!

I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it

Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?

I absolutely love your blog and find the majority of your post’s to be precisely what I’m looking for. Does one offer guest writers to write content available for you? I wouldn’t mind producing a post or elaborating on some of the subjects you write in relation to here. Again, awesome website!

Hi would you mind letting me know which web host you’re using? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you suggest a good web hosting provider at a reasonable price? Thanks, I appreciate it!

Amazing blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog stand out. Please let me know where you got your design. Thanks

Before there was the Swoosh, before there was NIKE, there were two visionary men who pioneered a revolution in athletic footwear that redefined the industry. In 1964 Bill Bowerman and Phil Knight combined their passion for athletic performance and innovation to create a company focused on furthering the performance of every athlete. Their mission is “To bring inspiration and innovation to every athlete in the world” – and if you have a body you are an athlete. It’s this mission that has lead to some of the world’s most innovative products, and the constant evolution of global sports. NIKE continues to set the bar with optimum athletic performance in furthering its position as one of the world’s most recognized brands.
