Finding Inner Peace Through Yoga - Week 1
We're continuing our inner peace yoga challenge with Day 2. Today's focus is on feeling grounded and stable, like the solid foundation of a mountain.
Day 2: Mountain Pose - Stand Tall and Strong
Mountain pose promotes inner strength and poise. Here's how to come into the posture:
- Stand with feet hip-width apart, toes facing forward. Engage your leg muscles.
- Press your feet firmly down while lifting the arches. Feel your foundation.
- Lengthen your torso up towards the sky with an upright but relaxed spine.
- Relax your shoulders down and draw your arms alongside your body with palms facing forward.
- Lift through the crown of your head towards the sky. Lengthen your neck.
- Stand tall with your chin parallel to the ground. Gaze forward softly.
As you hold mountain pose, breathe deeply. Feel your feet grounding down as your crown reaches up. You are stable, strong and centered, like a mountain.
Affirmation: I Stand Tall and Strong, Rooted Like a Mountain
Use this grounding affirmation in mountain pose:
"I stand tall and strong, rooted like a mountain. I am grounded, centered and stable."
Repeat silently or aloud, feeling your inner strength growing with each repetition. Mountain pose creates poise from the inside out.
