Zain Saraswati Jamal walks us through a meditation that not only supports your ability to surrender negative thoughts that no longer serve you, but also gives your legs and spine a good stretch.
Begin in seated position with your legs as wide apart as they can be while still comfortable. Take a deep breath to lengthen your spine and, while exhaling, walk your hands slowly in front of you. Bring your forearms to the earth and rest your head on your hands or on blocks for support. Rotate your thighs so your kneecaps are to the sky. Continue breathing and walk your hands forward even more, keeping your arms long, until you feel a comfortable stretch in the backs of your legs. Stay in the position for at least 25 breaths then rise on an inhale.
