For Day 3 – Stability is our focus. In our physical practice we find our footing. Attention is drawn to the legs and feet as we begin to rise up off the floor. If you missed yesterday’s practice, click here or start from the beginning.
Creating a solid foundation is necessary in our yoga practice to protect the body from injury. Off the mat, the foundation of other aspects of our life can indicate what level of stability we find within that aspect.
For our Day 3 – Stability yoga practice, you might want to have a set of blocks (or a couple thick books) nearby to help bring the ground a little higher as we move from hands-and-knees to standing today. A blanket, towel, or other piece of folded fabric may also be useful to provide extra padding under the knees.
We’ll continue to pay attention to the four corners of our feet as we find our way to standing.
Starting from a place of groundedness, we seek stability. The stability we find by centering into a space of quiet within ourselves can help us navigate the rest of life when upheaval touches our lives.

The element of Air is so present in this imagery. The High Priestess here seems to float about the waves. Waves which hold secrets and mysteries. Below her flies an owl whose form replicates that of herself. Wings and arms outstretched in flight.
“Won’t you soar?” She asks. “Take flight and allow yourself to rise to your potential. Answer the call to love your own soul and know that nothing will be able to keep you down.”
