9 Yoga To Poses To Release Emotions Practiced in This Class

These poses are practiced throughout the flow which I always recommend watching but if you’d like to play with just a few poses I use in this class here are the break downs and some modifications as well. 

1. Cat Cow

Cat cow is a great yoga pose to release emotions as you open up the heart space front and back. Its great to warm up the spine too. If your wrist bother you try this on your forearms instead or

2. Reverse Table Top

This is another great heart opening pose. I really love this too because it helps a lot with posture (which if you’re looking for yoga for posture check out this video!)

You can make this more advanced by extending the legs and moving into reverse plank. My absolute favorite to develop good pec and core muscles. 

3. Reverse Plank

I love the different of reverse planks, they truly open up the heart space in ways I cannot even begin to describe to you. I’m excited for you to give them a go if you haven’t already introduced them into your practice.

4. Downward Facing Dog

It really is a go to pose for releasing emotions because its a good reset from all the heart openers and inversion to help you balance back out. 

5. Star Pose

If you ever want to release emotions and step into your power, star pose is such a great pose. It can feel vulnerable at first which is why I recommend it inside the flow above.
