Source: Asana, Pranayama, Mudra, Bandha: Swami Saraswati

HOW to:

  • Find your foundations in any pose
  • Find the four points in the foundations (any part of the body connected downward) and BALANCE those 4 points:
    • Feeling grounded and stable
    • Create the shape of the square Earth Yantra representing stability and strength
      • in any pose/wherever you can
  • Even weight distribution
  • Feel a sense of being supported and let yourself be supported
  • Root down – feel a sense of roots sprouting down from the foundations into the earth
  • Solidity:
    • As you push down feel you can rise up
    • From a solid base we can grow
    • Root Down to Rise Up
  • In any pose – feel your connections downward
  • Strengthen your legs and open the energy channels of your legs with stretching too.
  • As you move and flow through your days consider are you balanced as you move and stable, centred and calm?
  • As you walk, press through your feet and feel your connection to mother earth.
  • As you eat, be mindful and chew thoroughly
    • You may start to eat more root vegetables from the earth especially at this time of year with the cooling winds and weather.
  • These above tips may carry on from last week in considerations of the autumn weather.
