To HOPE is to believe or trust that something desired may happen. We all have the hope that things will get better. We hope we will stay healthy. We hope we will be loved unconditionally. We hope we reach our goals, realize our dreams and live up to our full potential. Let's expand our belief that something desired may happen to us and include others to heal our societal wounds, meeting in the middle and accepting each other's differences, while maintaining our standards. Let's start looking for future possibilities...together.

Yoga Pose: Crane Pose Bakasana
An arm balance to challenge your core...and hope you stay balanced!
Foundation. From low squat, lean forward and plant your hands firmly on the ground, fingers spread wide apart. Bend your elbows to a 90 degree angle.
Legs. Lift one knee onto the triceps area on the same side. This might be enough to get a sense of what is to come. If feeling strong, engage your core and lift the other leg up to set on the other triceps. Bring your feet together behind you.
Arms. Continue to spread your fingers and press the whole hand firmly into the ground to maintain strength through your arms. Draw the elbows towards your center.
Torso. Lengthen your spine as much as possible.
Gaze. Gaze towards the ground and slightly forward. Breathe. Balance for as long as you can. To come out of the pose, drop your feet to the ground and come back to a squat. Rise to a standing position.
