Great daily yoga flows to clear negative energy

Updated: Jun 18

How to use pranayama to help release negative emotions and move on: Basic breathwork

  • Sit cross-legged with a tall spine and your hands resting on your knees

  • Ground down through the sits bones as you extend up through the crown of your head

  • With your eyes closed, deepen your breath and fill your belly with oxygen

  • Pause for a few seconds

  • Then slowly exhale all of the air from your belly

  • Repeat this practice for 2 – 3 minutes

Practice these 8 yoga poses to help release negative emotions and move on: 1. Bound Angle Pose (Baddha Konasana) We tend to hold much of our trauma and emotional energy in our hips. Bound Angle Pose will gently release your hips and help move blocked energy through and out of the body. Let’s try it:

  • Begin seated on your mat

  • Bend your knees and bring the soles of your feet to touch

  • Keep your feet on the mat and gently open the soles of your feet with your hands as though you are opening a book

  • Inhale and lengthen your spine

  • Exhale and gently allow the knees to relax toward the ground

  • Repeat for a few breaths

2. Upward Facing Dog (Urdhva Mukha Svanasana) To release trapped emotions, we need to be able to communicate effectively. Upward Facing Dog relieves tension in the throat and helps balance and unblock the throat chakra. Let’s try it:

  • Begin on your stomach with your legs extended and the tops of your feet pushing into the ground

  • Plant your palms on the mat directly beneath your shoulders
