Sit cross-legged, hands are on your knees, close your eyes. Exhale and turn your head to the right, inhale and bring it back to the center, then to the left and so on. After a few cycles, stop the movement, stay with your eyes closed, decide to dedicate this moment to yourself and let any thought that comes into your mind slip away, without holding it back.
Get on all fours. Place the top of your head on the mat and grab your heels with your hands in the rabbit yoga pose.
Now stand up, your hands are in prayer and your left heel is resting on your right ankle. Slide the foot along the leg to the knee, breathe, then, with your right hand, grab the foot and bring it as close as possible to the pelvis. Remove your hand and, with your hands in prayer, stretch your arms towards the sky. Breathe. Then release the position and repeat on the other side.
Stretch upwards and bend with your torso forward until you touch the ground with your hands. Bring your knees to the ground, rest your elbows and forearms on the mat, interlace your fingers. Place the top of your head on the ground between your hands. Raise your pelvis by taking your knees off the ground and stretching your legs. With small steps bring your feet closer to the head. Try lifting one foot, then the other. At first stop here, with time and practice you will be able to take your feet off the floor and achieve the headstand yoga pose.
Release the pose, lie on your back. Arms are at your sides, close your eyes and breathe. Move your attention from head to feet and vice versa. Feel the heart beating in your chest, strong and safe, it guarantees life and the flow of energy.
