Post #96: 7-Minute Yoga Vignette: Deepen Inner Steadiness & Calm
Have you ever noticed when you’ve had a disagreement with someone you feel it in your lower back? The lower back/hips area is a huge storehouse for negative emotional energy. Overwhelm can also hit this area pretty hard and cause a lot of discomfort.
If you have knee, hip or low back issues then you may need to wait on today’s practice. It is a strength building flow coupled with hip opening. It will help release the energy that is trapped here while revealing that inner steadiness and calm that is our inherent nature.
We must learn to take care of our lower back, hips, knees and spine. This is not just about protecting them physically but protecting them from the kinds of emotional stress that can wreak havoc on these areas. Ask yourself if you have disagreements with people that can be resolved. Are there things you can take off your plate so that overwhelm is a thing of the past?
Part of living a peaceful, meaningful life is checking in with yourself here and there to make sure some of this stuff isn’t creeping back into the picture. So take 7 minutes to enjoy this fun, quick practice and then revel in the inner steadiness and calm afterward.
Remember, you are a force for good in the world. The more consistent you get with these practices the more your life will become guided, sacred, and filled with meaning. You cannot help but then extend deep peace, joy, and contentment to your loved ones, friends, and everyone you meet. The world could use more of this, so let’s get you in the best space to make it happen.
