Wisdom of the Goddess Pose

    The Goddess Pose a Woman’s Friend

    The goddess pose is a deep external hip opener that also strengthens the muscles of your lower body. The movement in this variation helps to stretch and lengthen both arms while grounding you with strong thighs or calves for stability! Great as an expectant mother’s prenatal posture since it engages the pelvic floor along its flow by opening up a full range of motion at once

     

    The Goddess Pose for Balance and Concentration

    As we get older, it is important to improve concentration because our cognitive function can decline. Concentration exercises can help to improve brain function and prevent age-related cognitive decline. In addition, improving concentration can help to improve focus and mental clarity. Improving these two factors can help you to live a healthier, happier life.

    We need to maintain our balance as we get older. As we age, our sense of balance can decline due to changes in our muscle mass, vision, and proprioception*. (see endnote) This can lead to an increased risk of falls, which can cause serious injuries. Improving balance can help to reduce the risk of falls and improve overall health and well-being.

    What does the Goddess Pose Mean to Me?

    When I do the Goddess Pose I focus on the feminine side of me, the goddess inside. She is the one who moves me through my emotions and carries me to a stable place of feeling good about myself, about being a woman, and about being strong.

    The Goddess Pose is about strength in concentration. I feel like I am building physical and mental strength. From a physical perspective, I am not yet able to hold the pose for a full minute (as of this publishing). But I will continue my efforts on and off the camera. (Smile)

    The pose involves standing with your feet hip-width apart, then bending your knees and bringing your thighs parallel to the ground. Stand in the center of your mat facing the long edge. Begin in this standing position with your feet together.

    Then, take a big step to one side with your right foot and bend your knees so that your thigh is parallel to the ground. Place your hands on your hips, and then slowly lower your pelvis down towards the floor. You can then reach your arms up elbows parallel with your shoulder and hands in the air above your head.
