Your wrists get a break in this flow. Skip the Down Dog and take Childs Pose instead.

Guess what? There’s no vinyasas in this flow…it’s called a vinyasa flow because the movement aligns with the breath.

Half Sun Salutations, Warriors 1 & 2, Goddess, and Extend Side Angle are just a few of the poses in this flow. Each pose is explained and variations are offered so you can explore what feels right to you.

No props needed unless you want ‘em!

I talk about using Uddiyana Bandha in this practice…learn more about it: The Basics of Bandhas in a Yoga Practice.

A NOTE ON “YOGA for WEIGHT LOSS”: Practicing yoga alone is not a weight loss remedy. When used in combination with healthy habits off the mat it can be a great help. Especially to lower stress levels and find a deeper connection with yourself; physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. You can indeed get your heart rate up with some practices, you can sweat, strengthen, tone, detox, and burn calories.
To be quite honest, I don’t love using this term, but it’s a VERY high ranking SEO term; meaning people search it A LOT. I’m using it to direct more people to become aware of their mind body connection while working into a healthier lifestyle. 💫

Testing Your Boundaries 65 min Inversion Free Vinyasa Flow

Testing Your Boundaries 65 min Inversion Free Vinyasa Flow

Testing Your Boundaries tests your balance, strength, flexibility, AND your mind body connection. This vinyasa flow is for ANYONE looking to test their boundaries even if you’re NOT Inversion Free.

🎶👉 Spotify playlist: https://bit.ly/Spotify_TestingYourBoundaries

This explores playing between easy & hard and finding your greatest length before snapping. Notice what your mind thinks compared to what your body can do. The saying “Mind Over Matter” applies here. Do your best not to push beyond what you can handle, instead, bring yourself right up to it and take notice of what comes up emotionally and mentally.

Come back to this practice often to see how your boundaries change over time.

Good for experienced and seasoned practitioners or Newbies who love a challenge.

Enjoy! Be well.
Remember to breathe.

How to Open Stiff Shoulders – Inversion Free

How to Open Stiff Shoulders – Inversion Free

Welcome to this shoulder opening practice addressing arm positions found in Warrior 1, Downward Facing Dog, Cow Face, and Eagle by working on Flexibility in the chest, armpits, and shoulders.

Want Music? Try this Spotify playlist: https://bit.ly/StiffShoulders

Stretches for the armpits, triceps, chest, front of the shoulders, and in between the shoulder blades are targeted to help open those tight, stiff shoulders. All done with the wall and a yoga strap to stay Inversion Free.

Helpful Prop: a yoga strap or object that resembles it.

This area of the body happens to be where the heart chakra and throat chakra reside. So if you’re feeling indifferent or less creative, resistant or unresponsive these chakras will benefit from a shift in energy.

Opening the shoulders and chest is exactly what they need for you to feel more receptive, to tap into your creative juices, and allow for more compassion in your day.

Good for everyone. Especially if you have tight shoulders. 😉

Enjoy! Be well.
Remember to breathe.
