When the world around you feels uncertain, this is the best time to divert your attention and create a sense of stability from the inside out. Stability is the quality of strength and down-to-earth energy. Yoga Sutra 2.46 Sthira Sukham asana means a steady and comfortable posture. Developing this in your yoga practice will help you stay focused and take root in the present.
By balancing the needs of survival and security first, you can become your strongest and most down-to-earth self, regardless of the external environment. Muradala, or root chakra, located at the bottom of the spine, is the foundation of our body and energetic body, which is very important for our sense of stability. Muradala is the basic chakra, and solving it first creates a foundation for emotional and physical health.
A quick way to consolidate the foundation is to practice the three-dimensional style of the station. In the earth beneath your feet, you activate the earth element of Muradala, allowing you to show strength and determination. Starting from the mountain style or mountain style, press all the four corners of your feet into the ground, stand up straight, and taste the support under your feet. This posture is simple and powerful, which helps to create a sense of concentration.
Other standing postures that help you feel stable are Virabhadrasana or warriors one and two and Trikonasana or triangle posture. Focus on the connection between your feet and legs and the support that Mother Earth has always had under you. Enter Adho Mukha Svanasa or face down dog, where your feet and hands are connected with the earth. In all these postures, pull the navel slightly into the spine to activate your core, which helps keep the spine healthy. Remind yourself that no matter what happens, the earth will always embrace you.
Sitting posture and open crotch posture can also balance your root energy and create an inner sense of stability. When sitting in Pasi Mottana Sana or folding forward, pay attention to the connection between your sitting bones and the ground below you. Eka Pada Rajakapotasana or pigeon posture is a strong hip opener, which helps to release the past trauma and pressure, which are often manifested in this area of the body. By letting go of your old fears, you allow yourself to be truly present.
