Do This Now:
Energize yourself with this invigorating heart-opener: Stand with feet hip-width apart. Interlace your fingers behind your back and reach your knuckles down toward your tailbone. Draw the tips of your shoulder blades together. Reach your chest upward. Engage the abdomen to protect the low back. Lean as far back as comfortable, keeping your chin slightly tucked to protect your neck. Expand your lungs with fresh breath.

Inner Peace, Off the Ground:
Yoga in the Air and on the Water
by Valerie Reiss
On a good day during my friend Dara’s cancer struggle, I took her to my favorite yoga class. Though she had some yoga background, it was on the advanced side, and I was concerned she might exhaust herself. When the teacher announced that we’d be practicing Forearm Stand—an inversion I’ve never been able to do without fear—I worried. But Dara, with the teacher’s assistance, gracefully popped up into the pose, her first time. For a moment I could see it: She was free. When she came down, with a euphoric smile, she wanted to do it again, and she did.
That moment of lightness and play during a time of heaviness and grief has stuck with me—when you’re dragging, to feel like you’re flying is an amazing gift. Read more.
