As we move into our phase of rebuild & strength we can begin by standing strong and bring energy to our root chakra - that which brings us stability.




How to do this pose.
1. Stand tall with you feet hip width apart.
2. Inhale as you lift and spread your toes and the place them back on the ground (imagine your toes are like fingrs reaching up then gripping the ground.
3. Balance your weight evenly between the soles of your feet, and alow your toes to relax
4. Your lower body should now feel grounded and stable
5. Tuck you tailbone under to lengthen the spine
6. Relax your shoulders down and alow your arms to hand loose by your sides.
7. Point the crown of your head to the ceiling and softly gaze at a fixed point in front of you
