Let the goddess we all have inside, shine and light the world. ✨
The Sanskrit name for this pose is Utkata Konasana. Utkata and means powerful or fierce angled posture. When we combine a physically powerful posture with body language that enhances feelings of power, we can really make an impact upon the mind and body. The original intention of this posture was to inspire elegance and almightiness, unapologetic confidence and pride. This variation, folded body with with eagle arms is challenging, for muscles and mind therefore demonstrates exactly how I’ve been feeling of late!
Shifts are happening in all areas of my life. Growth is stepping out of my comfort zone and that’s exactly what I’m doing right now. I am feeling determined, grounded and at the same time challenged but quietly proud. I have a vision for the future which is empowering, I’m hanging in there, working hard, staying present, letting go and trusting that I have the infinite potential to carry through. All will be revealed in good time 😉
Goddesses don’t become goddesses by playing small. They let themselves shine, they inspire others, they’re wise and they aren’t afraid to be their truest authentic selves. 😉
