This quick, sweat-inducing flow is heavy on strengthening standing poses and the endurance-building transitions between them. Get moving right away with a fast-paced sequence including crocodile crawling, warrior 3, twisted monkey, and humble warrior flows, then come down to your mat for a brief savasana.
This practice is designed to mellow your mind and strengthen and stretch your entire body in just 20 minutes. After a mild warm-up, move through standing poses to work your legs and open your upper back, then try out a few balance poses to cultivate power poise. Finally, after lifting into bridge and wheel, it's all supine poses right into savasana.
By emphasizing the flow within each posture, this practice aims to bring depth to your breath and calm to your mind. Warm-up with surya a's, then transition into fun flows featuring tree, half moon, and crescent twists, while practicing jump backs and jump throughs to seated. Your practice will be dotted with strength-building reps, including pushing into wheel and half boat.
