40 days of powerful stomach exercises

Intention & commitment.

I taught a yoga class for the addictive Personality today at Alchemy on this topic and it was potent and powerful.

I talked about seeing an intention all the way through, the duality of the word: that it can be a desire in the future “I intend to ……” but that it can also be that you empower posture, yourself, ambition and desire with intention and in this aspect it is a very life changing experience.

I invited the class to join me in my intention to generate change and create structure in their life by committing to a 40 personal practice.  I did not count hands but I think most of the class were with me and I took them through the daily routine.

The intended intention behind the 3 postures is to build grit, heat in the body, creativity, projection, will and strength. It may sound like a tall order but I know from previous commitments to this practice for 40 days I have achieved all that I set out to do and more.

So join us. Starting tomorrow, for 40 days, ending on June 12th, find a quiet time that you can give 7 minutes to yourself.

Lie on a mat or folded blanket. Wear loose comfortable clothing. Eat after, not before.

10 sit ups. Knees are bent, feet on the floor, fingers at your temples so you don’t pull the neck. Inhale up, exhale back 10 times.

Take a few deep breaths.

10 leg raises. Head up off the floor to keep the lower back strong, fingers on temples, raise legs on the inhale, slowly, and lower on the exhale, slowly. Do not let the feet touch the floor in between.

Take a few deep breaths.

10 sit ups as before.

Take a few deep breaths.

10 leg raises but this time head up, arms out wide and as you raise the legs your arms come up to touch your toes and open back out again on the floor as you exhale and lower the legs.

Take a few deep breaths.

10 sit ups as before.

Take a few deep breaths.

10 leg raises, keep the head up, and this time as the  legs raise up keep going up and lift the pelvis up as high as you can off the floor towards the ceiling. Exhale and lower pelvis and legs.

Take a few deep breaths.

Now turn over and do, or aim for and build up over the days, 10 press ups with only the hands and toes on the floor. If this is impossible do from the knees, keeping the body straight and making sure the elbows go back, not out.

Take a few deep breaths.

10 more press ups.

Sit back on your heels, close your eyes and slow the breath down, feel the heat and energy in the body and visualise what you want to project, create, change and manifest.

You will build strength very fast. Take your time, make a set time each day and let me know how you are doing! I want to know how it feels, what changes.
