Make Peace of Mind a Priority favorite_border
Join Rachel for this sweet Vinyasa flow, perfect for morning or for a mid-day pick-me-up, and set your intention to make peace of mind a priority.
After anchoring into the breath and centering yourself for practice with an oracle card pull, you'll begin grounding into the body in Reclined Bound Angle Pose (Supta Baddha Konasana). Gently wake up the hamstrings and spine with Reclined Hand-to-Big-Toe Pose (Supta Padangusthasana) and twists, before making your way into a tabletop position for shoulder and side body opening. Generate some heat as you begin to flow through planks, lunges, a bit of core-activation, Extended Side Angle Pose (Utthita Parsvakonasana) and modified Side Plank Pose (Vasisthasana), then give the hamstrings some love with Pyramid Pose (Parsvottanasana).
Slow it down for a moment and stretch out the soles of the feet in a modified toes-tucked version of Hero Pose (Virasana), then have a seat to open up and connect to the heart with a Kundalini-inspired heart activation exercise. Continue cooling down and releasing as you open up the hips and hamstrings in Double Pigeon/Firelog Pose (Agnistambhasana) or Half Pigeon Pose (Ardha Kapotasana) and Seated Wide Legged Forward Fold (Upavistha Konasana), then energize the core once more before melting into the ground for Savasana.
For this class, you will need a strap. Optionally, a blanket and 2 blocks could be used for additional length and support.
