Yoga is an ancient energy medicine.
Yogāsana (poses) prompt energy flow in the physical body and rebalance energy.
One of my favourite Yogāsana
Supta Baddha Koṇāsana (Reclined bound angle pose)
In my nightly Yoga practice, I settle in this pose for at least 5 minutes.
Here is why
It opens up the body gently, allowing the energy to move, particularly through the hips and shoulders.
Unprocessed emotions stem from chronic stress, unresolved trauma, and disputes can get stuck in the hips and lower back, stopping us from moving forward and feeling free.
Shoulders – oh yes, so many of us carry excess responsibilities, burdens and guilt there. (Present and past) Heavy energy stored in the shoulders makes us feel stuck, too. It often changes its form to headaches that keep coming back no matter what you do!
Tightness in your shoulders and upper back hinders your throat chakra, which affects your ability to speak, express yourself, and create freely.
This pose also opens the heart and assists with healing grief, lowering stress, and increasing confidence and love.
What more can one ask for from one pose 🙂
