Wellness Wednesday: Goddess yoga pose

Weekly tips to bring island-inspired wellness into your everyday life from the wellness and spa team at Rosalie Bay Resort. Post written by Spa and Wellness Coordinator Laura Lund.

Goddess Pose, Secret Beach, Rosalie Bay Resort, DominicaStrike a pose, specifically the Goddess yoga pose (demonstrated here by a recent guest at Secret Beach).

The Goddess pose strengthens and tones the legs, hips, feet and ankles. At the same time, it stretches the hips, chest and groins. This pose also brings energy to the solar plexus and tones the pelvic region, making it a great pose for both men and women.

To practice the Goddess pose:

  • Step your feet 4 to 5 feet apart with the toes pointing out,
  • Take a deep squat, trying to get your thighs parallel to the earth, and
  • Keep the knees over the ankles and the chest lifting as you breath into the goddess energy.
Maintain your yoga regimen or improve your practice while on vacation at our wellness resort by joining Wellness Coordinator Laura Lund in the gazebo for our yoga class. Private instruction is also available.
