November 5 2020 | Asana, Ashtanga yoga
In yoga practice and in life I always try to remind myself that the sense off grounding is something I should start every step and every conscious thought with.
When your shoes are tight, its painful to walk. When your feet are cold, its hard to cheer up. When now we have a limited connection to each other, which is also grounding, we feel uprooted, all over the place, maybe, hyperactive or agitated. When we can’t see properly, it is ungrounding. When we can’t sit steadily and easefully for an extended time, our chance to be open for the meditative state of stillness is limited.
I invite us all to focus our practice on grounding. If you are an Ashtangi, we can acknowledge how grounding this practice actually is!
I invite us all to attempt not to rush towards the final expression of the asana, but ground in each pose first and then move forward.
