Anchoring A Buoy

Anchoring A Buoy

When we anchor ourselves firmly into ground, we can allow our heart a feeling of buoyancy. This warm up begins with releasing the inner legs downward, all the way. If you could get your inner legs to touch the ground, it might feel quite reassuring. When our inner legs grip, our hearts and brains grip too. Letting the inner groins go down, down, anchoring down helps us move more freely in the hips. But, it might also provide us with emotional and mental health.
