Home Practice Yoga Sequence for the Summer

For those of you who haven’t made it to class this week here’s the Yoga Sequence we’ve been doing to see you through the Summer. You can just do the warm up (line 1&2), line 1 is lovely before going to bed.Be super aware to keep your mind firmly rooted in the body as its easy to ‘vague out’ on your back!

You can follow the warm up with the entire sequence or just pick a line 3-5, depending on how much time you have the whole sequence will take 90 mins. You can slow the whole thing down and spend time in each posture being super mindful of where the blocks are in you body or your breathing or have a more flowing practice. Finish with at least 5 minutes in savasana (put a timer on so your mind can completely settle). maybe finish with a short meditation, watching your breath or SO HUM. ENJOY and see you in September.
