Vinyasa Flow - 75m

Teacher: Jen Pastiloff

Level: 1+

Class type: Full Body

Description:

What would you feel like if you believed in your self-worth every day? Use this flow to increase your belief in yourself and your right to be happy. No matter what the world has told you, you deserve to be happy! Breathe, flow, stretch and relax in this slow flow yoga class with a very important purpose.

Begin with a grounding meditation, then slowly wake up the body and core with cycles of Cat/Cow, Balancing Table Pose (Dandayamna Bharmanasana), Plank, and Downward Dog (Adho Mukha Shvanasana). Continue connecting with yourself and embodying happiness as you move through Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations), twists, Side Plank Pose (Vasisthasana), lunges, and Standing Split Pose (Urdhva Prasarita Eka Padasana) sequences. Transition to standing Warrior sequences for strength and power, then challenge your core and balance a bit with One Handed Tiger Pose (Eka Hasta Vyaghrarsana), a fun Chaturanga variation, and Forearm Plank/Dolphin Plank Pose (Makara Adho Mukha Svanasana).

Create space and release tension in the hips with Lizard Pose (Utthan Pristhasana) and Garland Pose (Malasana) before giving Flying Pigeon Pose (Eka Pada Galavasana) and Crow Pose (Bakansana) arm balances a try! Wind down the practice with Child's Pose (Balasana), Reclined Bound Angle Pose (Supta Baddha Konasana), and a touch more of reclined core work before easing into reclined twists for the hips and spine, Happy Baby Pose (Ananda Balasana), seated twists, Double Pigeon Pose (Agnistambhasana), and of course the most important pose of them all, Savasana.

There is nothing holding you back, and this profound, beautiful practice will help you tap into your deepest potential, and highest truth – happiness.
