Yoga to connect to intuition and purpose

Have you ever felt a deep sense of unease but you don’t know why, that something is out of place and you suddenly crave meaning and purpose? That little niggle that you’re not quite where you should be but you’re not sure how to get there?

We all have divine guidance available to us but that moment where we start to question who and where we are can often be the start of an awakening to our spirituality and connection to the universe, a greater power.

At our very core, the most powerful tool that we have in our physical and mental health is already ours, our intuition leading us towards a life of meaning, purpose and even guiding us on how to nurture our physical body.

This month our practice is designed to support you to tune in to inner and spiritual guidance. This powerful practice includes our senses, working with aromatherapy and crystal healing alongside a physical yoga practice to stimulate our physical and energetic body.

Step 1: Set the mood with essential oils.

Step 2: Take your focus inward, with crystal support.

Step 3: Three yoga poses to ground and guide.

Hold each pose for 2–5 minutes, repeating the affirmation in your head to yourself and notice anything that comes up for you, any physical or emotional reactions to the affirmations to explore later through journaling.

Toe squat with hands at third eye.

(If this is too strong on your feet or ankles simply bring the hands down and shift weight forwards slightly).

Affirmation: I trust my intuition.

Child’s pose

(If you need to fill any gaps you can pop a block or folded blanket etc under your forehead, you can also pop a cushion or rolled blanket between your heels and bottom for extra comfort)

Affirmation: All I need is already within me.

Waterfall (Legs up the wall pose)

Lie on your mat and place your chosen prop for support to lift your hips on to slightly elevate and extend the legs up (alternatively rest them against the wall). They do not have to be completely straight. Try to relax the shoulders and upper back down to the mat.

Affirmation: My mind is quiet and calm.
