While there are no specific yoga poses that are traditionally associated with the concept of Thanksgiving, you can incorporate mindfulness and gratitude into your yoga practice by choosing poses that help you connect with these feelings.
Yoga Asanas to help foster a sense of thanksgiving
Savasana (Corpse Pose): Start or end your practice with Savasana, a pose of deep relaxation and stillness. As you lie down, take time to reflect on the things you are thankful for, allowing a sense of gratitude to wash over you.
Child’s Pose (Balasana): Child’s Pose is a restful pose that encourages surrender and introspection. While in this pose, take a few moments to silently express gratitude for the present moment and the gift of your practice.
Mountain Pose (Tadasana): Stand tall in Mountain Pose, grounding your feet into the earth and lifting your arms overhead. This pose can symbolize your connection to the world and the strength you derive from it.
Heart-Opening Poses: Poses like Cobra Pose (Bhujangasana), Camel Pose (Ustrasana), and Bridge Pose (Setu Bandhasana) open the chest and heart center. These poses can help you cultivate an open heart and a sense of love and gratitude.
