Open Your Heart

yoga

Valentine’s Day is this weekend! (As if you needed another reminder) And even if you don’t have someone to celebrate with there are still ways for you to get in on the love.

It may be marketed as such but this day doesn’t just have to be about couples or who gets flowers delivered to the office. (personally I find this embarrassing, which is probably why I never get flowers) Use this day to love yourself. Spa day! Or love others. Send a friend a card. Or as a time to open yourself up to love (remember that Sex and the City episode?) Maybe you went through a bad breakup. Use this day to work on getting yourself back out there. Whatever you choose to do I hope you enjoy yourself.

In honor of this “holiday” I’ve put together some heart opening yoga poses. Give them a try and don’t forget to breathe!
