As yoga practitioners many of us know to extend our physical asana and postures. But the real work comes from expanding from our dynamic core to our skin. From the core to the periphery and then that informs back to our core.
Sit with your arms reaching out to your sides. Reach your arms out making the muscles and bones long, yet active. Extend.
Now reach you arms again and imagine that you are reaching from the ocean of your heart to the rivers of your arms and to the smaller rivers of your fingers. Radiate like the sun from your center out to your skin. Focus on the cylindrical energy of your arms. Expand!
"If extending is from the intelligence of your brain, than expanding is from the intelligence of the heart." BKS Iyengar
