When you feel stuck, or caught up in the challenges of life, change your life story by changing the way you see the world. Literally.
The first is what I call Sky practice. It’s very simple. If you’re a city or suburban dweller, chances are your eyes are almost always at human level or toward the ground. The human-made landscape around us reinforces this in so many ways. What I have found is that because my very eyes tend to be fixed on all things human, it’s that much harder to let go and experience the spaciousness of the world.
The second practice is also for dealing with challenges, especially those related to rejection, failure, and stuckness.
What is it? Doing inverted yoga poses. It’s about flipping the world over, which helps to flip your perspective. I recognized this keenly while doing Sirsasana, which is considered the king of yoga poses.
However, any inverted pose can offer you the opportunity to see the world anew. Down dog, for example, is a pretty accessible pose for most people. Uttanasana is another one. Inversions offer physical shifts in the body, which assist the mind in shifting as well.
