A Yoga Pose To Shift Your Perspective

Paravrtta Padottanasana
Come back. To that place where your mind is clear. The place where you are ok. That place where you say “I’ve done it again. Isn’t it funny how we can never see the light when we are caught up in that horrible place”. There is light. Sometimes all it takes is a shift in perspective – or someone to say “wake up”. . . . 💫

Pose: Parivrtta Padottanasana

This core stabilising, perspective shifting asana is a great way to strengthen the hamstrings, open up the shoulders, twist the spine, help lower back tension and provide a different perspective. Allowing the heart centre to shine it also relieves anxiety, and mild depression by calming the mind down and leading it away from your to-do lists. 💫This variation of Prasarita Padottanasana brings in the detoxifying richness with the twist, allowing the organs like the liver, kidneys, and spleen a good rinse, letting all of the toxins release. Hold for 5 deep inhales and 5 long exhales. 💫

Tips

  • Stay active in the core. With every twist we want to engage the abs and hug everything in so ALL the internal organs can get a good rinse.
  • Make sure your shoulders aren’t hanging around your ears. Pull them down and back.
  • If you cannot reach the ground, place a block/book underneath your lower hand.
  • If you want an added challenge, lift those fingertips off the earth to strengthen your core.
  • If your legs are straight, shift the weight to the ball mounds of the feet or you can very slowly rock back and forth from the heels to the ball mounds of your feet, feeling all the different muscles of the legs being activated. This gives you an opportunity to realize how subtle micro-adjustments like shifting the weight can affect the body.

Always, take care of yourself. Namaste,
