Grounding Poses

Life has a way of throwing us curve balls.  So, it is important to find ways to stay grounded in the midst of our daily chaos.  Maintaining a sense of being grounded helps with stress and anxiety reduction.  It can also help us keep our emotions in check, so we don’t fly off the handle or overreact to situations in our day.  Staying grounded goes a long way toward helping us maintain our overall healthy physical and mental wellbeing.

Here we share some yoga poses that are great for helping you get and stay grounded.  Do this sequence at home every day, like a mini at home class, to maintain that feeling of being grounded on a regular basis.  Or choose one or two poses to reground after a particularly rough day, as needed.  Either way, these poses can help you find that grounded feeling no matter how disconnected you may be feeling. 

Remember to take time in each of these poses to feel the connection of your body to the ground beneath you.  Stay in the pose for as long as is comfortable so you can really connect with the ground.  You can even choose to practice your breathwork while in some of these poses, if you would like.  If possible, practice these poses outside so your feet can actually connect with the Earth itself for an even more powerful grounding experience.  Connect.  Ground.  Enjoy.  Namaste.
