Even in the seemingly stark desert, a cactus finds the strength and resilience to bloom into all its glory, creating a striking contrast to the rough mountains in the background. No matter where you find yourself, find a way to flourish. Let your positivity lead the way to offer peace, beauty and hope to those around you. Do not let yourself be brought down to the pettiness of others. Stand strong. Find your inner strength and flourish to create a more peaceful and beautiful world. You've got this!

Yoga Pose: Pose of Infinity Ananthasana
Release your limitations and enter into your own infinite wisdom by finding stillness in this pose. Enjoy the steadiness and stillness of the pose, while a shower of endorphins release to stimulate your immune system.
Foundation. Recline on your right side. Extend your legs and stack your left leg on top of your right leg.
Torso & Arms. Support your upper body with your right arm. Place your elbow wider than your shoulder and keep your elbow bent at 90 degrees with your lower arm facing forward. Inhale and lift your torso upright. Release your shoulders away from your ears.
Move. Reach down and grasp your left foot with your left hand. Stretch your leg up towards the sky. Straighten your knee. If that feels too intense, keep your knee slightly bent. Lift your right leg off the ground to work your core. Firmly flex both feet.
Gaze. Tilt your head to look up towards the sky. Hold for several breaths as you relax into the stillness. To come out of the pose, release your left foot and slowly lower your left leg down to meet your right leg and then place both on the earth.
