The Asanas: Yoga Postures to Stabilize Emotions

Once the practice of yoga is undertaken through the asanas, instinctively, the body and the mind begin to experience sensations of purification, well-being, elasticity, and strength. The thoughts are integrated with the will of realization, control of the corporal movements, the mind involving emotions and sensations, as well as the stimulation of the organism, nervous system, and each gland that the human body buys.

Within the practice of yoga are various asanas that can be learned according to each individual’s intention, requirements, and practice discipline. You can start yoga with breathing exercises, movements of neuromuscular conditioning, strengthening of joints, the flexibility of muscles, the stability of emotions, stress control, and attacks of anger, among others.

Yoga has overcome barriers of time, ages, and religions, providing its practitioners’ stability and security in their thoughts, words, and actions. Next, I will share a sequence of basic yoga to stabilize the emotions and harmoniously start the daily routine.

Basic Yoga Routine For Holistic Wellness:

Take 8 minutes to stabilize the thoughts and start the transformation of your environment.

Start sitting on the mat, a rug, the floor, the bed, or a sofa. The important thing is to guarantee the comfort of the body, the straight back, and the active abdomen. Take deep inhalations observing the frequency of emotions, exhale deeply, and release the tensions of the mind and body: repeat inhalations and deep exhalations 5 to 8 times.

Once the attention is on the breathing stand up.

  • Tadasana – Mountain Pose: Stand with both legs well stretched to separate the feet to the width of the hips. Inhale deeply four times, hold inspiration for a few seconds, exhale four times releasing all the air. Look for the straightness of the spine, release the tension of the face and shoulders.
  • Virabhadrasana I – Warrior I: The left foot goes back to a quarter of a distance, it rotates about 180 ° (the heel of the right foot is aligned with the arch of the left foot), the right knee flexes intensely, pay attention not to cross the toes, the hip rotates forward; both arms and elbows extend and rise to the top. They join both hands and try to look between them. It stays with slow and deep breaths. Perform a complementary side.

  • Trikonasana – Triangle Pose: Standing with legs spread almost twice as wide as shoulder width. Inhale deeply while raising the arms to the sides, so that they are parallel with the floor. Exhale, and with one foot perpendicular with the other; lateral hip flexion is made. Rest your left hand on the ankle, calf, or thigh, while the free arm goes upwards vertically, and with the palm facing forward, bring the look to the ring finger that is on top. Control breathing while performing this posture will help to deepen this asana. Perform a complementary side.

  • Balasana – Child’s Pose: With the knees resting on the mat, lean forward completely. The buttocks are held on the heels; the knees are slightly separated, allowing the abdomen to rest on them. The forehead rests on the floor, and the arms move back, letting them rest on the floor with their palms facing up. The tension of the shoulders is released, and the breathing becomes more relaxed and conscious.

When performing the asanas, the attention and intentions of the movements are totally conscious—allowing yogis to master thoughts and develop strength, stability, emotional balance, concentration, health, and harmony with the external world and themselves.
