Nectar is a rich and sweet liquid produced in the depths of a flower. As such, I’ve always associated it with essence and the sweetness of our life experiences – like we savor the nectar of our experiences so we don’t miss them.
Today’s practice is nectarian in that it is slow flow leading to restorative and includes a steady, fluid pace coupled with pulsations to move along any stress and tension. It culminates in a luxurious restorative pose to rejuvenate, restore and nourish you like nectar would.
You’ll want to have a bolster or a double-stuffed pillow case, a blanket rolled at its longest width so it looks like a big piece of spaghetti and two blocks or some large books for today’s practice. You can always get creative!
