Mindfulness with Ulrike

Did you know that our Talent Manager Ulrike is a trained yoga teacher? There are various yoga poses Ulrike will be sharing to promote relaxation to the body and mind. Try it for yourself….


Steps

  1. From hands and knees, take the sit-bones back over the heels and your hands out in front of you. Slowly fold your torso forward until your eyebrow centre rests on the mat.

  2. Your big toes touching, either have the knees together or separate the knees wider than your hips.

  3. Arms are traditionally resting back alongside the body, palms up, but you can stack your hands and forearms and rest your head there if that’s preferable.

  4. If your hips or butt aren’t touching the heels, you can place a cushion in between so you can let go and relax. Stay for at least 10 breaths and let go as much as you can with every exhale.

When we’re frazzled all the time, we tend to put a lot of pressure on the adrenal glands, which can lead to burnout.


Child’s Pose is one of the most soothing poses for the adrenals, so practicing this regularly can be like a giant hug, bubble bath, and bowl of soup all in one package!

Stress Less Tip: Visualise a soothing colour at the eyebrow centre (blue, lilac, or gold). Feel as if that colour is flowing in and out with each breath, soothing and calming your mind more each time.
