Sometimes multi-tasking can make you feel less like a human being and more like a human doing. An overactive mind can lead to scattered focus, feelings of overwhelm, and to negative emotions creeping in. Yoga can aid us in breaking this cycle by grounding us, helping us center, and bringing us into the present moment. Presence helps stabilize us, and allows us to experience more love, peace, joy and harmony in our lives.
To get more grounded, try this Prithvi Namaskar (earth salutation) yoga sequence by yoga teacher Melissa Gall. Anchoring warrior poses offer a steady path to quieting a jittery mind. These shapes also encourage focus because the movements build strength, endurance, and stability.
