Be open to the power of the Goddess, which radiates from your core and gives you the courage to rise up and meet the challenges ahead. OHHHHHH that’s good Ju- Ju right there. Benefits Builds personal power and teaches us the balance between will and surrender. This pose strongly activates Third, Second and First Chakras.
How to Goddess: Start in mountain pose. Stand with your feet about 4ish feet apart- toes out heals in. On the exhale bend knees over toes and bend elbows. Pelvis searches for the mat. Elbows as high as your shoulders.
