POSE OF THE DAY: SWASTIKASANA
As mercury retrograde ends tomorrow, February 28th, you will see things get a little easier. During mercury retrograde, confusion with thoughts, communication, and everyday little struggles seem to be amplified. As the planet of communication, Mercury retrograde tends to raise a certain level of confusion, by clouding how we perceive and interpret information that we receive from our environment, and how we relay that information to others. All of our relational habits and traits are affected when Mercury is functioning in a sluggish state. With this in mind, today, the last day of Mercury Retrograde is a wonderful day to stay connected with your breathe and stay grounded within your own being. The Asana swastikasana pose is a superb way relax and meditate before a large shift occurs in the universe. By connecting our sit bones with the earth, this auspicious pose, which is the mystical symbol of good luck, is wonderful for strengthening the abdominal muscles, elongating the legs, as well as relaxing your mind and body.
