Continuing on in our zodiac series, here’s our Cancer yoga practice. I’ve decided to go with yin yoga for this theme as I wanted us to connect deeply with the energy of the sacral/svadhistana chakra and heart/anahata chakra. Cancer is a cardinal water sign that relates to deep feeling. I love to think of the expression “feel it to heal it”

It’s associated with the archetype of the Nurturer or the Mother. This isn’t only about nurturuing others, but also nurturing the self. It connects to our relationship with home & family and the inner most sanctum of the heart. Cancer signs can be very emotional but they have deep potential for unconditional love and compassion. This is a gift! Their shadow side can include clinginesss, moodiness or manipulation.

This 30 minute yin yoga practice is suitable for all levels and will use 2 blocks. We will focus on poses that open up our hips and our upper body in order to free up stagnant emotions and tap into deep feeling centers. Since Cancer is the nurturer, I want this practice to be super nurturing for your physical and emotional body. We will be in each pose for 3-4 minutes so remember not to push yourself too far. We are not chasing sensation, we want to be able to relax deeply.

Affirmations for Cancer:
– My capacity for love is endless
– I am in tune with my needs
– I balance giving and receiving
