try the harvest life essential oil blend with these grounding poses
warm wood ∙ leafy earth ∙ citrus simmer pot
This earthy-sweet blend transports you to a cozy evening spent at home, while overcast clouds chill the air and the aroma of baking spices, damp cedar bark, and citrus swirl from a simmer pot on the stove. The combination is soothing for anxiety and fatigue, mood boosting, and slightly sedative.
2 parts Cedarwood Atlas, 1 part Frankincense, & 2 parts Sweet Orange
This is the perfect blend to calm and comfort while you nurture your body, connect with nature, and enjoy the present moment. Pair the Harvest Life Essential Oil Blend with these grounding yoga poses.
1. Nourish Your Spirit
During Fall, the natural world begins to change, leaves begin to transform and fall, and the energies of letting go rise. It is a time to connect to your creativity and spirituality, and to enter this season with an intention to live in the path of least resistance. It is a time to let go of things we no longer need and accept the beauty of impermanence. Take some time to tune in to your senses and spirit; rest, journal, drink tea, and take many deep breaths.
2. Mountain Pose (Tadasana)
Begin by standing strong and tall, rooting down through all sides of the feet. Let your arms settle and rest by your hips. Draw your shoulder blades back and widen your collarbones to open the chest. Allow the body to settle and feel your feet grounded into the earth beneath you. Feel your breath travel through the body. Feel the fullness of your being and feel your power grounded firmly in your presence.
3. Tree Pose (Vrksasana)
Trees teach us how to stand firm through all the changes of day and night, climate and season. Bring in this rooted energy by shifting your weight into one leg and gently placing the sole of the other foot on the inner leg, above or below the knee. Begin to stretch the arms overhead and relax your shoulders away from the ears. Breathe slowly and quietly. Release and honor all that you are letting go.
4. Downward Facing Dog (Adho Mikkha Svanasana)
Warm the body from the inside out by connecting your hands and feet to the earth. Start on all fours, exhale and lift your knees away from the earth and push hips back. Slide shoulder blades down the spine and open the sides of the ribcage for deeper breathing. Extend your heels toward the floor with a slight bend in the knees. Take five slow breaths and let the grounding energy rise.
5. Warrior I (Virabhadrasana I)
From downward dog, step one foot forward and bend your knee over the ankle, so that your shin is perpendicular to the floor. Pivot the back heel to the floor so your foot forms a 45-degree angle to the side of the mat. Align both heels, raise arms above your head, and reach toward the sky. Lengthen your spine and open the chest. Take five to ten grounding breaths, when you are ready switch sides.
6. Corpse Pose (Savasana)
Every living thing has the chance to practice the cycle of life, death and renewal. This pose is the final resting pose in yoga, and gives us the opportunity to leave our old body and emerge anew. We leave the sequence of postures that challenged the mind and body, any negative thought patterns, and integrate the benefits from our practice. Begin by lying on your back. Eyes closed, open hips, and arms gently resting by your side. Connect to the heartbeat of mother earth, let her hold you, and harmonize your internal rhythms.
We hope you have a lovely day!
