This & That: Surrender

rushing

Feeling like life is moving a little fast lately? The best thing to do might be to surrender. Try the forward fold variation of Gomukhasana (cow face pose) to practice opening and letting go.

Personally, I love this posture. It’s a true hip opener and you can’t force it. Hip openers work like that. You can’t fight the release. The body absolutely will not go, unless you let go. To me, it’s just the most beautiful lesson. And one that I can always use – especially around this time of year.
