Summary: This blog intends to describe eight Yoga poses that are highly effective in keeping one grounded irrespective of situations.

 

Nature is the biggest source of everything that we have. This statement doesn't go too well with the fact that this generation has gone too far from the natural way of living. While the sun is the source of energy, the earth is the mother of stability and patience.

 

There is no substitute for the beautiful experience that one enjoys while staying connected with Mother Earth. One should listen to the serene music that the earth and nature sing to pacify our minds for keeping the mind active and dynamic every time.

 

Here are some of the yogic exercises that are extremely beneficial for keeping one grounded and present –

 

Shishuasana (Child’s Pose)

The Child Pose is about pacifying the brain and bringing relaxation to the whole body, mind and soul. Sit on the lower legs with knees bent and the hips placed on the knees.

 

Bend forward to touch the nose on the ground in front of the knees by placing the hands beside you.

 

Close your eyes and feel the calmness to deep inside the core. The practice helps you remain calm forever with its holistic energy. Anytime you feel loosened up, just take out a few minutes for Balasana.

 

 

Phalakasana (Plank Pose)

Phalakasana is a popular Yoga exercise that is mainly practiced for stretching the arms muscles and balancing the life with instant energy.

 

Put the weight of your body on your palms and toes by making sure that the whole body is in a straight line, from neck to feet.

 

Enjoy a couple of breaths in the position. You can also place your elbows in place of palms to make it a bit more advanced. This pose will energize you to the core.

 

 

Tadasana (Mountain Pose)

Tadasana is quite simple in practice but comes with enormous benefits. The Yoga pose is extremely effective in blessing the mind with awareness and enlightenment. It is probably the best pose for connecting you to the ground. Stand easy on the mat with feet and arms apart. Take a deep breath and focus on the central forehead.

 

The standing Yoga asana is also good for improving the posture of your body and strengthening your spine.

 

 

Savasana (Corpse Pose)

Like Tadasana, Savasana is also among the easiest of poses. If you are feeling the heat of this world of challenging environment, let the Corpse Pose stay you grounded.

 

The asana fetches potential energy from Mother Earth and sponsors the same kind of resilience she has.

 

Lie on the ground with legs and arms spread. Relax in the position for 10-15 minutes.

 

 

Adho Mukha Vrksasana (Handstand)

No doubt Handstand is difficult to perform but its difficulties find it hard to compete with the vast network of benefits that the pose brings with it.

 

As its name suggests, Adho Mukha Vrksasana is about standing on your hands (palms).

 

The practice should be started with the help of a wall that makes it easier to balance the body in the beginning.

 

 

Setu Bandha Sarvangasana (Bridge Pose)

In order to stay connected with the moment and situation, all you need is a healthy body and mind that can be attained by the regular practice of Setu Bandha Sarvangasana.

 

Like its name, Bridge Pose, the exercise helps in creating a perfect bridge between the physical wellness and your soulful state of the mind.

 

Beginning in Svanasana, bend your knees and place the foot on the ground. Lift your hips with the help of your hands by making sure the shoulders and head are in contact with the ground.

 

 

Meditation

Probably no Yoga exercise is more efficacious in provoking the brain and soul to remain present in the current moment in spite of numerous disturbances around you. The biggest teaching of mindful Meditation is to take complete care of the situations and act accordingly.

 

The mind goes in the mode of extreme silence when you indulge in Meditation.

 

In order to bring more connection to the world, you can include Mantras along with routinely practice of this mental and spiritual exercise.

 

 

Uttanasana (Intense Forward Bending Pose)

Uttanasana is one of the best Yoga asanas for activating the body instantly. The practice is known for boosting the blood flow throughout the body and specially sponsoring pure blood in the brain.

 

Standing straight, bend forward keeping the knees unbending, touch your feet with the fingers and keep the nose near the knees.

 

Stay in this position for a few minutes with continuous breathing. This will also stretch the thighs and arms muscles.

 

 

Over To You

 

Are you ready to become a more balanced and healthier version of yourself? If the answer is yes, it’s time to learn yoga as a hobby in life and embrace mindfulness as a part of your everyday life.
