Open Your Heart, Self-Love Through Yoga

It might sound cliche but loving yourself is where all love starts. I have found over the years of practicing yoga, specifically Kundalini that I have so much appreciation for myself, mind, and body.  It has allowed me to experience true joy and happiness within myself first. This allows love to flow in with ease and abundance.

Heart openers yoga poses are the best place to start if you’re new to yoga. There are simple poses to being with and more advanced when your body is ready. Allow chi energy to flow and trust love will too.  *Sunshine from Poe Yoga explains how yoga is a very powerful connection between mind, body and soul. By moving through particular asanas combined with deep Ujjayi breath, your prana( energy ) is allowed to flow through your body unobstructed. Each posture has an effect on certain parts of the body. Heart opening postures are some of the most powerful and liberating! Sunshine explains three yoga poses for self-love that you should try.

 

Pigeon Pose (Kapotasana)Kapotasana or Pigeon Pose is an asana which strengthens the groin, and back and stretches the abdomen, ankle, groin, thigh, psoas major muscle, throat, chest and front of the body
