Starting your Monday on a positive note!
Energy tip from Ike Dielesen
Start your Monday with the sphinx pose.
You can come to the belly and support at the lower arms. The arm can be super close to the body, however they can also be further away. If you would like to create a bit more compression in the spine, you could rest the arms at any prop. If you need some support, you can bring a pillow underneath the upper belly or chest. You can stay in this pose for 2-5 minutes. Breathing, observing and maybe even bringing your attention alongside the line from the tailbone towards the top of the head. Imagining this energy flowing alongside this line.
A pose focusing at the spine and opening the chest will be a nice pose to create some energy. Alongside the spine we have all the chakras. And with opening the chest and heart area you will create some energy to start your week.
Another pose to create energy will be an inversion. The inversion can be a supported shoulder stand. Use a bolster or pillow if a bolster is not at hand. Then come to the back. Tilt the hips up and bring the bolster or pillow underneath you. Let the pelvis rest at the bolster and then bring the knees to your chest. You can stretch the legs and let them hang backwards, so that you do not need muscle strength to keep them up. The knees can be bend as much as you like. Bringing your attention to the breathing, the heart and let everything just relax as much as you can. You could stay here for 2 – 5 minutes.

When time is short and motivation is lacking, even a 10 minute yoga routine is always better than no yoga at all.
