Benefits Of The Goddess Pose

The goddess pose is not a widely used pose in Vinyasa yoga, however the other day I happened to try it for the first time in my yoga class and the benefits I felt were great. I instantly felt a great blend of strength, stretch, and mental toughness. You feel connected with the ground and solid like a mountain.

The pose has so many benefits to it: It opens your hips, legs and, chest, it strengthens the legs, and it stretches your shoulder joints. What I love most about this pose is that you can hold it for a very long time, giving you time to really notice and respect what is happening to your body. So, this weekend, wake up and practice a goddess first thing in the morning, and learn a little bit about your body and give it strength.

Thank you, not only have I not heard of it, it doesn’t look all that painful nor complicated! Nahmaste!

I’ve been really into goddesses lately. This is the perfect wake up in the morning stretch to get the blood flowing, maybe combined with a five minute headstand to reverse the blood flow and to contrast the feeling of being sturdy like a mountain :)
