Athena Pose

  • Feet facing forward & hands distance apart
  • Knees slightly bent
  • Exhale and grow paying attention to the 3 domes .. pelvic, respiratory, and the top of the
    head.. are in line.
  • Slight axis shift forward
  • Allow your heels to reach towards the floor to allow you to grow
  • Keep your eyes open and looking towards the horizon
  • Arm position is palms facing out elbows wide and away from the body
  • You can think of the bubble analogy, as if you are inside the bubble and opening up and
    becoming one with the bubble
  • You want shoulder blades away from each other but not rounded
  • Shoulder girdle is open and active
  • When the arms are in this position they will encourage the ribs to open
  • The arms in Athena can be down with the hands at hip level or middle with finger tips inline
    with the arm pits or raise higher but remember the energy is always moving away from the
    midline.

You have the option of moving the arms up while in apnea when the first inhale is taken you
then move them down on the exhale as rest breath one.
