Join Andrew as he takes you through the Seat of Compassion

This heart opening sequence begins with the Chair of the Heart posture and then includes the Charity and Crane postures. This Seat of Compassion is a deeply nourishing pose for the thoracic area. If you are someone who easily loses energy and feels tired in the throat area, then this sequence will help increase the blood flow and revitalise you.

Practising the spinal wave in the Charity posture helps to ensure greater flexibility in your back. 

The primary emotion of this pose is stated in the title: compassion. Opening the heart helps us to restore our capacity to trust. Right from the beginning this is a sequence that literally opens up the chest and so focuses and activates the heart chakra to release the energy of compassion and selfless love. As you move through each stage of this sequence remind yourself "I open myself to receive the full love of the universe and I trust that all is well". 

This is a dynamic, flowing yet demanding sequence. Please, make sure that you have relaxed the shoulders and that you have a strong lower back before doing this sequence. We suggest you watch the sequence through before joining in.


This sequence has been taken from the class Feel good Fast. Watch it here...
