GOOD MORNING: 3 Minute ‘Mountain Rising’ Mindfulness Practise

Short but focused yoga is the best way to get you out of bed and full of energy in the morning. Perfect for beginners, try this 3 minute practise.


Step 1: Stand with your spine vertically aligned, your feet hip length apart and your arms by your side. Push your feet into the ground.


Step 2: Imagine you are a mountain rising up from the ocean. Your feet are in the water and your head is the summit.


Step 3: Stretch your arms up as high as they will go and spread your fingers apart. Take a deep breathe in through your nose. Hold this position: solid and still as a mountain.


Step 4: Be aware of any thoughts or worries you have. Imagine them as little waves in the ocean, splashing by your feet.


Step 5: Breathe in and out to blow the waves further and further out to sea. Watch the ocean become calmer and calmer.


Step 6: Relax your body and lower your arms. You are ready to start your day!
