To stimulate creativity, I love the fluidity of a vinyasa practice. Finding ease and fluidity in our physical movements is a great way to also encourage flexibility and suppleness in our thinking. Here are my go-to poses to get me into my most creative mindset.
Dynamic Cobra Pose
I love this dynamic variation on traditional Bhujangasana when I’m looking to be creative.
Bring your hands to the floor just to the side of your mat and come up onto fingertips. From there, practice inhaling and exhaling deeply as you undulate your spine down to the floor and back up into the full expression of the pose. The wave-long oscillations help to stimulate a flexible spine and mind.
