15-30 seconds. Initially, that’s all you need to do is start. If you ask a woman today what flexibility means to her, she would instantly spout out the innate ability a woman has to multitask- handling and holding down careers while maintaining households, being a superlover to her mate, and all sorts of other acrobatics the 2010 woman balances on a daily basis. Flexibility in the sense of stretching or exercising is an afterthought, though the benefits of mastering your physical body will maximize your presence and peace as a Queen. A Queen should always maintain being limber and agile. You never know when these skills will come in handy for you.
How often do you take deep breaths? I’m sure nearly not often enough. Close your eyes, and breathe in and out on counts of five while sitting in an indian style position. Do as many repetitions as you need to feel the effects of serenity and calm over you. Scoot your left leg forward and lean into a deep stretch of your left leg. Hold this position for 15-30 seconds, and alternate and repeat as you can with the other leg. You will notice maybe some pain, but after the stretch is completed you will feel loose. This is because your stretch is increasing blood flow to your tissues and naturally exporting stress out of your body.
Stand up and raise your arms over your reaching for the sky. Remain conscious of your deep breaths. Hold this position 15-30 seconds. Try leaning up on your tippy toes to extend this stretch. Hold this position for as long as you can. Once you are back on your feet, bend over and touch your toes, if not your toes as low as you can go. Remember your breathing. Remember you are relaxing and renewing yourself. Your confidence, coordination, posture, and performance will increase if these techniques are integrated into your daily routine each day. You’ll want to work out because you’ll notice your body feels refreshed and limber again. Your lover will be amazed by your new shape shifting positions. Flexibility is indeed one of the secret weapons a wise Queen can always pull from her arsenal and use every single day.
To say that a Queen’s affairs should take precedence over a Queen’s physical temple (her body) is short sighted and counterproductive. To neglect Mother Nature’s gift of fluid movement to us as her daughters is denying us our personal connection to the Universe, and a higher level of unity of spirit, body, and mind. To define flexibility as simply a time management tool or compliance mechanism is like using your Blackberry just to take phone calls. Take 15 or 30 minutes daily if possible and worship the temple that is you. This awareness will increase once we discuss Yoga, Pilates, and other flexibility, strength, and stamina exercises. Until then, here are some additional pictures of stretches you can try to increase your flexibility.
