Here are some great poses to help you continue your 21-days of balancing of the Earth element. 1) Malasana or squat pose. Use a blanket under your heels for assistance. 2) Deep lunge or dragon. Blanket under the back knee for support. 3) Lunge variation. The twist helps the lines that move up into the abdominals while holding the back leg gets stimulation along the quadriceps. Hold at the toes to tap into the lines in the shins and top of the foot. 4) Bhekhasana or frog pose. Modify based on what your knee allows. Press your pubic bone towards the mat to intensive and take out any low back compression.

No more than an inch tall, they were a piece of wire wrapped in thread and stored in a yellow painted bamboo box. I don’t remember why my grandmother had gifted them to me after a trip to the caribbean but I remember using them frequently as a child. I’d pull them out before bed and use them so that I could sleep.
I am all about bundling up. I like to be cozy and warm. Even though I live in the south, we are starting to see low, cool temperatures in the morning which means a wrapped up start to the morning on the meditation cushion.
