“You have to develop your strength to face your world. You must be in a position to understand what the pressures are. If the pressure is on you and your flexibility and your springs do not give you resurrection to go above it, you will be facing a storm of life.”

Rise to the challenge
Powerful Postures like Frog Pose help us move through the places in our lives and in our emotions where we get stuck, where we feel paralyzed, unable to move forward.
This posture of elevation, activates the lower chakras and sends that energy up into the higher chakras, opening us to our heart and to our true potential. It rejuvenates us mentally and physically.
(If you’d like to know more about Kundalini Yoga and the Chakras, here’s a post about the
First Chakra aka Root Chakra.)
Your breath will help you
The secret to mastering this pose is staying connected to your breath and your navel, letting your inner strength and commitment support you. When it gets challenging -and it will- increase the power of your breath.
And notice where your mind goes when it gets hard. Yoga is a microcosm, showing how you support yourself through the challenges of life. Do you go into judgment, victim mode, anger, stubbornness? Or can you keep a sense of humor, cultivating a lightness for yourself?
You can do hard things
Challenges make us strong and sometimes the most precious insights come through the difficult experiences.
– Come into a squatting position with your legs and feet spread into a wide V
– Toes are off the floor, heels together, buttocks resting on the heels or calves
– Fingertips are on the floor between the legs, chest is open and lifted
– Inhale, keeping your fingertips on the floor, straighten your legs. Your buttocks will raise in the air as your head drops down, try to bring your nose towards the knees
– Exhale, drop the buttocks to the heels, head comes up
– Inhale and exhale very powerfully, you should hear your breath
Continue for 11 Frogs and build up to 26, 54, and eventually 108
To end: Inhale deeply, legs straight, letting your upper body dangle for a nice stretch.
Exhale and relax.
