“Yield to the flow. It is the most intelligent, fulfilling thing to do. Surrender your best sense of what to do or not to do and trust in the flow of Being.” – E. Schiffmann

Friday Focus: Detoxing Flow

cascade-1159345__340

For our February purification, let’s get things flowing!

Here’s a simple vinyasa (taken from our classes this week) to blend the breath with movement. Be sure to warm up a bit with Cat-Cow &/or Child’s Pose before transitioning into the flow.

Detoxifying Vinyasa:

Adho Mukha Svanasana to Virabhadrasana I to Virabhadrasana II to Reverse Virabhadrasana II to Parsvakonasana to Wide Angle Urdhva Hastasana

Pivot to the left side, take downward dog and repeat.

Tip: If you are having trouble transitioning, skip the Downward Dog and go straight into Virabhadrasana I.

Enjoy!
