Today we return to Sun Salutations in honour of the solstice, the longest night of the year! Happy Solstice, lovely beings!

Do each pose for five to eight breaths (or five to eight breaths on each side, if it’s asymmetrical). Do five to eight rounds of abs.

Never stretch into pain. Take care of your body. If you’re pregnant then skip the abs exercise and don’t do anything that doesn’t feel right.

  1. Take three deep breaths, focussing on the sensation of breathing.

  2. Gentle stretch: Shoulder Shrugs

  3. Abs exercise: Elbow to Knee

  4. Something zingy: Sun Salutations

  5. Final relaxation: Lie on your back in a warm place for at least a minute and let tension drain from your body.
