In yoga and wellness circles, we tend to through around the word grounded, a lot. This isn't just a woo-woo, crunchy granola ideal but a physical feeling in the body and mind. Think about the words and feelings behind what a quick shallow breath and a deep belly breath. Seriously just try it. Notice how the deep belly breath helps everything feel more calm and heavy in the body...this is grounding.
The article linked below for Bustle is one of my favourites that I have contributed to. Not only are there a number of great voices in yoga being highlighted, it is full insightful direction about how to relieve stress. There are even videos to go along with each pose!
