Foundations of Flow - Lesson 1

Set the Foundation with Breath
Lesson 1: Set the Foundation with Breath

Grab your mat, and get ready to enjoy this short, 28-minute flow that covers the basics of our lesson #1 poses! We’ll start by developing a connection to the breath with a 3-part breath technique, and then we’ll warm up the body with gentle movement, paying attention to the foundation of each pose. Next we’ll practice half of the classic Sun Salutation series. From there, we’ll move into some standing poses to engage the legs and open the hips and side body. Finally, we’ll come down the floor for some mild seated stretches and our final rest.

Recommended props: 2 blocks, a blanket, and a strap
