May Freebie: Short Morning Vinyasa
This month's free download is a moving mediation with rhythmic breath and repeated arcs of movement.
Backbends are a powerful force for boosting energy levels, especially when groggy in the morning; however, the morning is also a time when we tend to want to ground, rooting into the time, day of the week, and schedule we're about to inhabit. This sequence is designed with both in mind. It balances supported backbends with deep lunges during which we plant down and root through the feet.
Side note: This is my first foray into online teaching; please excuse any little editing goofs! Future videos, as well as any paid content, will likely be much more refined.
Welcome, and I hope you find something of value here.
I am a 200-hour RYT with a background in dance, as well as an extensive academic background in biology (B.S. from Boston College) including coursework in human physiology. I turn to yoga, and asana in particular, to ground myself in a moving meditation that gets me out of my head and into my body. This is the same experience I seek to create in my classes, along with a visceral sense of strength and ease, comfort and challenge.
