Dr. Lynn Rossy, Health Psychologist for Healthy for Life guides you through the practice of mindful yoga. Mindful hatha yoga consists of gentle stretching and strengthening exercises, done slowly, with moment-to-moment awareness of breathing and of the sensations that arise as you put your body into various postures. While you will be following Rossy's instructions, it is very important to simultaneously listen to your own body in order to discover your version of each posture--honouring the wisdom of your body and what it tells you about how to move into a posture, how long to hold it, and if you need to move out of a posture before Rossy say to, then do so. If you find yourself unable to do a particular posture, please feel free to skip it. We always recommend that you check with your health care provider before starting a new practice of physical activity.
