This is how I wake up every morning, with some gentle, opening movements and rolling my joints to increase the fluid inside the ligaments. This sequence is Part 1 of the 'Dance of Shiva and Shakti', an ancient yoga practice from the Himalayas learned from my teacher, Peter Clifford at Anahata Yoga. This sequence gently awakens the body and is especially healthy for the spine (we move it in all directions) great for the legs and there's no weight-bearing on the wrists. Please note: if you have a very sensitive lower back, practice gently and with awareness. I hope you'll feel energised after practising with me - let me know in the comments below how you get on.
