Where is your happy place? What sensations do you feel when you are there? Even if you cannot physically be in your happy place, just thinking about it, imagining yourself there can have the same effect on the body as being there in person. The body does not distinguish what is real and what is imaginary, that's why our thoughts have an impact on our physical body even when those thoughts are imaginary.
Where is my happy place? Lying on the grass at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Before the stay at home order, this was my sanctuary, offering both a sense of solitude and a place to meet up with friends. Being with mother nature became my go to place for every felt emotion; this place was able to hold everything for me the way a mother might hold space and care for her child. The more I practice yoga the more I realize my sanctuary is any place I can roll out my mat. Yoga practice has helped move stagnant energy to release emotions like grief, fear and anxiety especially during Covid.
The pose you see here is a twisting lunge. It stretches the spine, improves mobility and helps the digestive system. Do this pose when you are feeling anxious. Spinal Twists can help your emotions to flow better in the body while detoxifying the organs.
A Change In Perspective
Sometimes when I find myself too caught up in my thoughts it can be helpful to literally change perspective. Although doing a headstand has many benefits, it's not necessarily needed to bring about this shift. A simple twist, forward bend or fish pose can bring more clarity. Asana poses like these are designed to offer a break from the chatter in your mind.

"Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts. Wherever your mind becomes scattered, use your breath as the means to take hold of your mind again,"
