To GLOW is to shine or to exhibit strong, warm color. It is the feeling that arises from doing what makes your heart happy. Good health. Loving without regret. Creativity. Strength. Decisiveness. Helping someone. Letting go of the past. Taking a risk. There are so many ways to make your inner light shine warm and bright. Do something good for yourself. Find what fires you up. Glow forward into the world!

"I glow with positivity."
Yoga Pose: Warrior I Virabhadrasana I
A pose with a strong foundation that expands your presence in the world and makes your energy glow.
Foundation. Start in Tadasana (Mountain Pose). Set your intention.
Stance. Step your left foot forward into a lunge, bending your left knee, so that the left knee is in a 90 degree angle (or more), with the foot in line with the outer hip. The right leg extends out behind as straight as possible.
Torso & Arms. Inhale and lift your torso upright. Sweep your arms out to the sides and up overhead. Release the shoulders away from the ears. Draw the tailbone down toward the floor and lift your pubic bone toward your navel. Lift your chest from the strength of your shoulder blades against the back torso, creating a bend back.
Gaze. Tilt your head back to gaze upward. Reach your fingertips to the sky. Expand your body in all directions, energizing the pose and glowing outward from within. Hold for at least nine breaths. Release your arms down and step back to a standing position.
