Lesson 4: Fire Up Your Flow
Practice staying awake and alert, while remaining completely relaxed in this final Fundamental Flow!
Now that you’re getting into the flow of the traditional Sun Salutation A and several standing poses, we’re going to add in a variation: Surya Namaskar B (Sun Salutation B). The Sun Salutation B is a little more fiery and intense than the A version, so enjoy building this heat in the body! We’ll also play with some fun and different ways to add our first arm balance (Side Plank) into the flow of a Sun Salutation. We will also cruise through a balance challenge where you’ll get to practice a few standing balance poses, followed by some hip opening and some seated forward folds. We’ll finish with relaxing, BIG TIME, in a lovely restorative, posture, Stonehenge.
Recommended props: 2 blocks, a blanket, and a bolster
