How to stay open with yoga poses for Sagittarius

 

Hey Stelari tribe, Brooke here, Cosmuse’s resident yogi. If you haven’t heard of Cosmomuse, we are a new blog helping you create lifestyle magic with the stars.

Our most recent post is a Sagittarius-inspired yoga sequence. This sequence was created to help stoke and maintain your creative fire. Designed to invite expansion into areas of the body that are frequently tight or constricted by stress.

 

Below are 3 poses in the Sagittarius sequence: 

 

Sukhasana

  • Sukhasana is a great pose for Sagittarius because it helps relieve tension in the hips. Even though Sagittariuses are known for being easy going and up for adventure, they too experience stress and anxiety when feeling trapped. The sacrum region (including the hips) is an area where stress is commonly stored. Try Sukhasana out before going to bed or first thing in the morning.
  • Fold forward in Easy Seat Pose (Sukhasana)
    • Physical and Mental Benefits:
      • Calms a busy mind
      • Strengthens the back
      • Stretches the outside of the knees, ankles, and hips

 

Uttanasana

  • Uttanasana might just be Sagittarius’s best travel buddy. Because Sagittarius always wears her desire to explore on her sleeve, she often finds herself in situations where adventure is number 1 and the comforts of home are number 2. Whether traveling by train, plane, or automobile, Uttanasana can be done almost anywhere. Popping into Uttanasana can be a great way to bring new blood into both the kidneys and the liver. Occasionally, Sagittarius’s appetite to experience new things can get the best of her. Keeping Uttanasana as a go-to-pose when in need of a mini detox is smart for your traveling.
  • Standing Forward Bend (Uttanasana) with palms of hands under soles of feet
    • Physical and Mental Benefits:
      • Stimulates the liver and kidneys
      • Stretches the hamstrings, calves, and fronts of hips

 

Garudasana

  • Garudasana is probably the best symbolic pose inspired by the eagle, who at any moment can spread its wings and escape to another place. This is what Sagittarius craves. Sagittarius should practice this pose to find balance in the transient lifestyle she embraces. Practicing this pose midday can help Sagittarius focus on where to adventure next.
  • Eagle Pose (Garudasana)
    • Physical and Mental Benefits
      • Strengthens tiny muscles in the feet and upper back
      • Stretches the fronts of the legs and hips
      • Improves concentration
      • Helps with balance
