Warm Up Your Body with Yoga

5 min is all you need to get the body warm!

 

Why use yoga to warm up your body?

To wake up your muscles & fascia for better function and to connect with your breathing.
👉Use this as a stand alone practice OR use it before another type of workout!

Constant movement, like in this practice, creates warmth by moving the energy around the body. This wakes up parts that were stagnant and relieves tension from areas that were over stimulated—in other words, it creates energy balance.

As you move through the warm up, your heart rate will slightly increase and the breath will get faster which may feel challenging as it quickens.
It’s okay — when you are warmed up, the breath, although at a faster pace, feels less labored.

NOTE: Feeling ‘out of breath’ means you may be pushing too hard.

Intense stretches are avoided in this warm up as those types of stretches tend to come after warming up; so when we do stretch, move mindfully and stay shallow in the stretch.

Afterward you can easily move directly onto a cardio workout, another yoga practice, weight lifting, or any other physical activity that requires warming up!

Balancing Act

Regain balance in 62 minutes…

Balance can feel elusive…one second you have it aaand then you don’t.

Back and forth we go.

The good news?
We can create the feeling of equilibrium practicing lots of balances, sharpening our mental focus since distractions will knock us down.

One thing we can do to help minimize the elusiveness is to work on our concentration and
our core strength in the physical balances.
This full practice is chock full of core work to prep for Standing Split, Warrior 3, and Half Moon Balance.

PLUS—this practice also strikes a balance between strength and flexibility;
both physically and mentally,
providing equal attention to all parts of the body.

Back Bends & Twists Vinyasa Flow – 43 min

Back Bends & Twists Vinyasa Flow – 43 min

Back Bends & Twists Vinyasa Flow

This back-bending twisty practice is a luxurious 43 minutes…


Back bends have this magical power to open the heart center.
Why would you want to open that?

If you’ve got a case of the blahs or feeling low energy, asanas that stretch the chest area and move the spine around help to move the stagnant energy out of those areas to bring in fresh new energy ultimately lifting us up; energetically, emotionally, and physically.

Sounds nice, right?

Physically speaking, this practice will help strength, flexibility, and mobility of the
spine and back muscles.
We’ll play with Lord of the Dance, Locust, Bow Pose and a few other luscious back bends.
Twists are used to neutralize, mobilize, and release tension through the back. Plus twists just feel good!
