A gentle, relaxing and energizing yoga flow followed by body-focused meditation for a morning (or anytime) self-care ritual
Our yoga flow today starts with simple motions to integrate our awareness, breath and bodies all together. We’ll loosen up the major joints of the body, start to activate the muscles and then work into some vinyasa (breath to movement) work.
We’ll then work into Sun Salutations, which are one of the oldest yoga sequences we know, designed to release tension through the body, energize the spine, increase circulation and coordinate the different nervous systems of the body and the opposite hemispheres of the brain. We’ll play with a little balancing work to focus the mind and open it into a more receptive, experiential state.
We’ll finish off with a short meditation. We’ll rotate our attention to different parts of the body as a means of solidifying the mind-body connection and quieting down the thoughts.
All together this flow is perfect to ground down, to energize, to awaken the mind-body connection and start the day or to reset!
