The Ultimate Power Pose
We often feel powerless, unable to speak with our voice or create movement with our action. Our body language is both a cause and effect of these feelings. Intimidation, fear, embarrassment. We feel small, we may even want to be invisible. And yet, our body movement can also be the catalyst for changing these emotions. Read on for what is needed, and what is not needed, to transform your negativity with one simple pose...
It’s not strenuous
It’s not unreachable
You don’t need to go upside down
or put a leg behind your head
You don’t even have to touch your toes
You don’t need to look like those Instagram yoga photos
Or say an inspirational quote
Your body is a yoga body
Your alignment is beautiful just the way it is
You don’t need to be able to pronounce Patanjali
or say big words in sanskrit
this powerasana is yours
Regardless of your age, your background
Your access to those overly expensive yoga pants
Even access to a mat
You can create space for this pose wherever, and however you are
Even if you don’t believe
in the magic of this human life..
Just try this simple pose
and feel your spirit lift
Even one arm up can help
but try both
Whether you're sitting, standing or even laying down
Expand your chest
Allow your heart to open
Inhale, and exhale
Maybe blockages melt away
Maybe they're not ready yet
Regardless, close your eyes
Lift your arms up and say YES - I AM ____________
only with love
and this feeling that you feel is true
that you are worth this
and you can do this
and all which you set out for
is within your reach
