Magic Carpet Pose
Use the yoga mat as a tool to practice balance, and visualize a wild adventure. In Spanish: Postura de Alfombra Mágica.
Begin cross-legged, about 12 inches from top of mat.
Gently fold the mat over the knees. Hold firmly with each hand.
Inhale and sit back into the seat. Slightly raise knees off mat.
Exhale and lower back down. Release the mat.
