The Warming Pour
Outside your doorstep, the trees turn the color of fire under a clear blue sky. You step onto the pavement and stop to watch weathered leaves flutter to your feet. The air is crisp. You pull your collar tighter. A shiver flows from your neck to your spine — you never seem to wear the right coat on days like this.
Next time, try this twisting breath to stimulate circulation and blood flow on cooler days:
- Stand with your feet wider than hip-width apart and take a few deep breaths to find center.
- Extend your arms out to your sides to ensure that you won’t hit anything as you move.
- Begin to twist your torso from side to side, allowing your arms to fly freely. Breathe naturally or inhale at center and exhale as you twist. Notice how you begin to feel warmer.
- Increase the speed and vigor of your movements. As your arms fly, let your hands slap against your shoulders, low back, and chest.
- Keep your feet planted or lift your heels as you twist from one side to the other. Continue for one to two minutes.
- When your time is up, stop twisting, rest your hands by your sides, and notice your heart beat.
