Blossom and Grow
By moving the energy in your lower chakras, you can harness your creative power and move through the world with more compassion.
Vikasitakamalasana (Blossoming Lotus Pose)
From Baddha Konasana, inhale and lift both feet off the floor, keeping your heels pressed together. Exhale as you thread both arms under your knees. Inhale as you join each thumb and forefinger together. Open your chest, lift your heart, and take your gaze up toward the heavens. Hold for 5 breaths.
Utthita Vikasitakamalasana (Extended Blossoming Lotus Pose)
Exhale as you release your arms from under your knees. With your first two fingers grab your big toes and on an inhalation extend both legs up and into a straddle. Gaze
up toward the heavens as you stay for 5 breaths.
Vikasitakamalasana (Blossoming Lotus Pose), preparation
Return to the Blossoming Lotus preparation and observe any transformations that have occurred in your body and mind as you take 5 deep breaths.
Baddha Konasana (Bound Angle Pose)
Finish the sequence by coming back to Baddha Konasana. After 5 to 10 deep breaths, repeat the whole sequence, twisting to the other side.
After You Finish
Go Upside Down
Move into Supported Shoulderstand and stay for up to 20 breaths, unless you feel any neck pain. From Shoulderstand, transition to Plow Pose for 5 to 10 breaths. Both poses stimulate the fifth, or throat, chakra—the visuddha (purification)—to help you express yourself creatively.
