The Yoga Warrior Story and 6-Pose Flow (for when you are angry and feel like kicking something)

The Yoga Warrior Story and 6-Pose Flow (for when you are angry and feel like kicking something)

I had been practicing yoga for over 20 years before I started to dig into the rich stories and history of each pose. What were they individually trying to teach us? What little pieces of wisdom were hidden in between the "rise up through your crown" and the " twist as you exhale" moves.
In today's episode I wanted to look at yoga and helping you through those times when - GRRRR - you are so angry you could kick something, so you and I are about to walk through a 6-pose yoga pose story of rage, revenge, regret and figuring our how to approach what gets us most angry and dealing with those times like a yoga warrior.
I should preface this by saying that dealing with life's GRRRR moments DOES NOT mean sitting back on your yoga pillow in blissful meditation listening to crystal bowls play in the background. It means using your fire, your voice, your strength and getting up off you mat to take on the world like a yoga warrior, with equal parts of courage and compassion.
But before you begin, we have to head back a few thousand years as there is someone I want to introduce you to. His name is Shiva and he had this full on Romeo and Juliet romance going on with his girl Sati. As you might have guessed, her Dad was not on board so Sati then . . . . . I'll save the rest for the episode as we walk through this story, how it can help you deal with your biggest conflicts today, and - of course - we go through this 6-pose yoga flow that you can do in minutes a day to help prep you for the GRRR things on your to do list today.
Let's go get 'em, Warrior.  - Marla
