Ground Yourself

What are some grounding techniques that work for you?


Ashtanga ABCs Day 8 {Ground Yourself}


Challenge Pose: Utthita Parsvakonasana



Grounding is one of my favorite benefits of yoga because helps me to be more present in this moment.

Being ungrounded can feel like having anxiety, feeling generally unfocused, not being fully connected to the reality of a situation, or just having a mental or logical experience of life but not really feeling and experiencing it in your body.


Yoga can be grounding as it connects you back to the ground you are standing on, and to your breath, body, and the moment you are practicing.




In Utthita Parsvakonasana or Extended Side Angle Pose, you ground yourself as you press your hand and feet into the ground. You connect to yourself as you look at your drishti, the palm of the outstretched hand. And once you’re in the state of the asana, all there is to do is find stillness and breathe.


One of my favorite non-yoga ways to ground myself is just taking my shoes off and walking on the grass with my bare feet. Dewey grass in the morning is particularly nice.
