Mountain pose is one of the best grounding poses because it requires a solid foundation through the feet and a straight spine which allows energy to freely move upwards and downwards.
You can do mountain pose anywhere ;it simply involves a thoughtful standing technique.
Try it once a day:
Stand up straight, with your feet together.
Spread your toes wide to grip the ground.
Roll your inner thighs back and draw the tailbone down.
Move your chin down and draw your shoulder blades together, place arms at your sides with hands facing outward.
Focus on the feeling of your feet rooting into the earth. Feel every part of your feet: your toes and arches. Notice how solid and supportive the ground feels.
Send the breath downward; your energy moves down the body into your deeply rooted feet. Now you may start to feel grounded.
When we do this pose, even for a moment, we're paying attention to the energy in the lower extremities, not the head. This way we can rest the energy of the mind.
We stand tall, solid, proud, like a tree. Enjoy your re-connection.
We all have the right to be here with Mother Earth.
