Remember the time when you’re younger and dreamed about becoming a princess? Well, scratch that. Today, we work to be a goddess! Here are my five secret yoga for women tricks to achieve that.
What is a goddess? Definitely, we have our own ways of defining the word. As for me, over the years, I’ve learned that the road toward goddess-ship (yes, I’ve just made that up!) isn’t exactly easy. It requires building one’s confidence, loving oneself, achieving peace despite the problems that come my way, being strong, and radiating inner and outer beauty.

If you could look inside her mind, you would find a world of landscapes; dense jungles of words unspoken and high mountain peaks of liberation. Hot, barren deserts of uncertainty shored by endless bodies of love soaked seas; and vast prairies of flowering gratitude for experiencing it all. #LettersbyLamise @lamise Day 7 of #SoftandStrongwithAlo Is a warrior pose and I picked warrior 3. Hosts: @summerperez @asanavanessa @getfityogagirl @thegivingmom @alissayoga @yogi_goddess Sponsors: @aloyoga @alo.moves #warrior3 #warriorthree #balance #warrioriii #warrioriiipose #virabhadrasanaIII
Are you up for an interview for a very important high-paying job? Do you feel as if you’re not competent enough? We all have those days when we are not our best. But you should not spend your time sulking. Cheer yourself and boost your confidence with a Warrior III pose that promotes balance, concentration, physical strength, and better legs so you can stand taller and prouder.
For Peace Of Mind: Dancer’s Pose
Work, child care, pregnancy, relationships, and even PMS – yup, we women face A LOT of stressors. Sometimes they do get to us, and we just like to give up! Of course, we should not. In times when your mind seems to be filled with anxiety, regain your peace of mind with the Dancer’s Pose. It teaches you to be engaged but at ease.
For Self-Love: Compassionate Eagle Pose
What do you do when your insecurities creep out like the monster in the closet? I do yoga, and one of the yoga for women poses I absolutely love is Compassionate Eagle Pose. It’s a simple but a very strong reminder that no one can love me more than myself. To love myself, I should accept everything I am, including my flaws.

Fitness for me is being strong, and I believe the Forearm Plank is one of the best moves for yoga for women. When you get to perfect this by doing it regularly, you’ll develop stronger arms, tighter abs, and more toned legs – indeed, this workout engages a lot of your major muscles.
For Beauty: Marichyasana C
The Marichyasana series can be a good complement to yoga poses for anti-aging. The movements may be more complicated than the others in this list, but they are great detoxifiers. By removing toxins building in your body, you protect your organs from premature deterioration and enhance the quality of your skin, making you look and feel beautiful.
