Awake & Evolve: Cycle 2 - Splits Practice
This practice is most effective after a workout or a sweaty yoga practice. Go through 5-10 rounds of slow sun salutation to prepare the body for splits.
Slowly work your way into splits starting on the right side. Feel free to use any props you need. Be mindful and listen to your body, working with your breath to go deeper. If you have to stay lifted in a modified variation used blocks or a blanket for support. Stay in the pose for 10-15 breaths and repeat on the opposite side. Do this pose at least 2 rounds with any arm variations.
**Yogi's Tip~ If you wish to go deeper in the pose and open the quadriceps and hip flexors then reach back and grab the back leg. Hold on to the ankle or toes as you maintain your balance in the pose for 10-15 more deep breaths.
