She's a little crazy and that resonates with me as I strive for peace in an otherwise crazy frame of mind. Kali is known as the dark mother, showing a tender, protective side while bearing a sword to destroy false consciousness--she's a lover, a mother and a warrior.
This flow is dedicated to my dark, crazy mother:
[Performed w/goddess arms; chest open forward and lifting]
[Exit on inhale, arms frame the head, lunging leg straightens and heels turn in as toes turn out]
[Feel free to really tap into your Kali side here by stretching the tongue out and down as the eyes roll up]
Step back to the front of the mat and repeat on the other side.
