It’s summer! It’s morning! I’m refreshed after a good night’s sleep. I was soon off last night with the fresh air of the wide open window and a session of yoga nidra and relaxation yesterday evening – my eyes were already heavy when my head hit the pillow.
This morning they opened lazily as the breeze stroked my face and the birds were entertaining with their usual dawn chorus. My body wanted to move but it felt too soon to get up and on with the day. Yoga was on my mind so I began shuffling around under the covers.
The shuffling morphed into lengthening, the lengthening morphed into curling, the breath turned softer and longer as the movement became fluid as the body reacted to each subtle change.
It became a morning practice on the bed which was so softly supportive.
I hit the day for real with a renewed calm disposition which stayed with me for the rest of the day.
Have a go next time you wake early and feel it’s too soon for the day to start.
Happy bed yoga-ing!!!! Is that a word…….?
