Activate your divine feminine with this simple but powerful pose. Grounding and centering and calming at the same time. There are many variations to this pose. When you add the heel raises it strengthens your legs, feet and ankles like crazy. Focus on opening your heart center in this pose and breathing deeply down into Mother Earth and radiate it back up through your heart and out through your hands. I am woman, I am strong, I am powerful, I am rooted, I am.
Please see my Yoga Pose of the Month Library for past poses you may have missed.
Important muscles to strengthen that are commonly over looked- your pelvic floor muscles. For a woman the exercise is referred to as kegels. Sorry men, I’m not sure what the terminology is for you. I’m open for suggestions! Kegels are different than Mula Bandha, for those of you yogis. Mula Bandha focuses on the area between the genitals and the anus, and is also an “energetic lock.” It is technically used throughout most yoga poses. It helps you become lighter and stable and keeps the energy from escaping through the root chakra. Kegels focuses on strengthening the pelvic floor. Both are important. When I remember I kegel in the car while stopped at red lights. You can contract and hold muscles and/or you can do repetitions, 10 or so at a time. Release the muscles slowly, that will build strength as well. Happy Kegeling!!!
