2020 DAY 5: 🔥Core Strength & Stretch 🔥Yoga Flow!
ABOUT THE CLASS: This Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga® Flow class is a bit more slow flow and gentle, to work on your core, build heat, but also help you dissolve stress. Stress hormones and digestive issues can block your fitness progress. Sometimes going hard isn't the answer to create lasting change.
Today we light more of a blue flame, with a mostly knees-down practice to target the lower body and total core. Then we deep stretch it out, so you can better move, breathe, listen to, express and nourish yourself from center.
ABOUT THE YOGA: I'm an anatomy of movement specialist, and as a lifelong yoga teacher, I noticed that yoga alignment, and healthy anatomy were often not the same thing at all! So I created Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga®, a transition-focused style of yoga you can add into your own that can make it even more effective, with far less joint strain. With me, you'll get into the poses you love in a more holistic, organic way, as my transitions move with and from the earth and your core, more.
This style takes what's good about classical styles (the reverence, some of the poses, and the mindful teaching of a yoga lifestyle), and enhances it all with proper anatomy, biomechanics and physics knowledge to keep your body stronger and your joints much safer, for a lifetime.
In this style, you'll double the results from each minute spent on the mat: twice the muscle action, twice the calorie burn, twice the muscle tone and detox--all because you're now working with your nature, instead of against it.
*Modifications given for beginners*. If you spend 30 minutes here with me, it's like you've done a 60 or even 90 minute regular class! Woohooo! 🎉
PROPS: All except the yoga mat are optional, but I strongly suggest two yoga blocks, and if you want to take the strengthening up a level: 2 wrist OR hand weights (water bottles will do) for this one. Ankle weights work as well if you're looking to bust a plateau, and you want more challenge.
As always: Do what you can, rest out as needed, and build up to more in time. If there's anything here that's off limits to you, just dance around or do a pose that's accessible to you instead, and then meet up with me in the next pose! It's most important to keep moving, but please rest out in Child's Pose anytime you really need.
Meet me on the mat as we slow burn away old limiting energies and unlock the belly! 🔥
