Turn Your Fear into Stability

Hatha | By Elena Brower on May 15 2012
With this practice we transmute any heavy energy - sadness, grief or fear - into grounding stability. Through this sweet flow sequence, with interesting use of the back foot leading into anjaneyasana, even forearm stand, we will address the musculature of your legs and groundedness of your feet in order to transmute what's weighing us down energetically into a strong and steady foundational energy.

    Thank you....I will use my children who have been weighing heavy on me with sickness, negativity, fighting, and sleeplessness as my steadiness, my strength. Many blessings to you!

    Sitting in Brooklyn, waiting for Hurricane Sandy to hit, there is a very real fear for our lives and damage to our homes. Was looking for a practice today when I came across this. Thank you for putting together such an intricate and eloquent class. I always enjoy the guidance of your specific instructions, absorbing your wisdom as much as possible. Namaste.

  • Amy Rein     Jun 11th, 2012
    Thank you Elena. Each time you offer me this message it resonates a little deeper. Although I know the hardships in my life have brought me to some wonderful places, this class helped me to embody that teaching in the present. Amy
  • Tracey Fritz     Jun 5th, 2012
    This class really resonated with me, and that is saying something since I've loved all you say in your classes. Taking something uncomfortable and inviting it in a loving way to support me in a different capacity instead of trying to get rid of it is an epiphany. Here is a doable way to accept and allow all that arises in me in this moment. Thank you.
  • Ariela Summit     May 22nd, 2012
    Elena - It's like grace sent you to tell me exactly what i needed to hear. Thank you.
  • Tarini Bauliya     May 21st, 2012
    Nice class, Elena. Steady, grounding, embodied clarity. Thank you!
  • Rachel Hanberry     May 20th, 2012
    Hi Elena, thank you for a great class as always. I have one question though, I got cramp a few times in my feet during anjaneyasana, any idea why that might be? Otherwise I feel really grounded, thank you, only this morning I was meditating on accepting fear with loving compassion and this practice has solidified my meditiaton. Om shanti :) Rachel
    • Elena Brower     Feb 10th, 2013
      Hi Rachel!

      Try to come back onto your toes and stretch it out when your foot cramps. You might want to try to add some more potassium and magnesium to your diet too... allegedly that helps with muscle cramping. All the best!
  • Jeanette Darbyshire     May 19th, 2012
    Thanks Elena. I did this class night and fell into a deep sleep in savasana. This morning I feel very grounded, optimistic, spacious in the body, and have quite a delicious feeling through the legs; worked, but not overworked. Thanks for all that you offer.
  • Julie Preston     May 18th, 2012
    Wonderful as always, so great to have you in my living room again, not the same as being with your in class in New York a couple of weekends ago though!. The students in Belfast are benefiting from all your wisdom though as I share your teachings. Namaste
