Short Yoga Routine for Everyday

Rooftop Yoga with Emily

I promise you don’ t need a rooftop for some yoga, so no excuses 🙂
Do you spend a lot of time sitting on a chair? Do you regularly feel stiff in your back, shoulders and neck? Or do you simply want to stretch a bit in the morning or before going to bed?
These 4 Asanas (poses) are easy and achievable by anyone. Just use 10 minutes of your day to get down on the floor, on your yoga mat or on your living room mat.
Maybe they won’t look exactly like this and they might not feel very comfortable in the beginning, especially if you just started with yoga.
But progressions are guaranteed, if you keep practicing.

Rooftop yoga sequence
Upper right – Cow pose = make sure you are opening the chest and rolling the shoulders back; perform this pose on an inhale followed by a cat pose
Upper left -Cat pose = use use arms to press away from the mat and to round in your upper back; perform this pose on an exhale followed by a cow pose
Lower right – Puppy pose= start in a table top , keep the hips aligned with the knees, walk your hands forward and melt your chest towards the ground ;
Lower left – Child’s pose = bring your sit bones towards your heels, and round your spine. Other versions include opening the knees to the side while keeping the feet together and extending the arms forward.
Hold Puppy pose and Child’s pose for at least 10 deep breaths each.

Do it for yourself, keep practicing and enjoy the journey.

Love Emily

An Astonishing Journey of Self-Discovery

Middle Path Movement started with a journey of Self Discovery. I never planned to be a yoga teacher and certainly never envisioned holding space for others to heal, but as a child I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disease that meant it was either the Western Medicine route which called for a cocktail of harsh chemicals weekly hospital visits, surgery and needles or find my own way to Self-Healing.

Julia is one of the most precious yoga teacher I’ve ever had! I would recommend all her practices with a special mention for her yoga nidra. I got so relaxed and so deeply calmed down by her voice during each session, she helped me letting it go towards either a tight sleep or for restful nap. Very powerful experience and human being. thank you Warrior Princess!

Julia ably and effortlessly led a vinyasa class with clear instruction and really helpful assists. She spoke about philosophy just the right amount, there was still plenty of space and quiet to really get into the practice. Thank you Julia!! I loved it

Julia is an amazing teacher. I have had three classes with her so far and she already improved my asanas a lot. I appreciate her hands on experience and eye for detail. Thank you Julia. Big hug! (by the way: her guided meditations are the best!)
