Awake & Evolve: Cycle 1 - Deep Hip Flow
Start your practice standing in mountain pose, finding your breath and clearing the mind for 15 slow deep breaths. Flow through either 5 slow sun salutations or 10 up/down dog vinyasas to warm the body.
Warrior to Side Angle Vinyasa
Flow into Warrior 2 pose for 5 deep breaths. Start on the right leg first, turning your right foot in slightly to the right and your left foot out to the left at about 90 degrees. Try to find your alignment squaring the hips to the side wall. Feel your thighs become strong as you deeply lunge into the warrior 2 pose. Stretch and lengthen through the arms turning your head to gaze and you front middle finger taking 5 deep breaths. From there move into side angle pose releasing your elbow on the thigh or your fingertips to the floor next to you front foot. From there extend your left arm straight up toward the ceiling or along side the ear relaxing the shoulder down the back. Take 5 long slow breaths in side angle pose feeling a deep hip opening. Repeat on the left side. After completing one slow round on each side begin to flow with the breath through warrior 2 to side angle in a vinyasa. For this cycle take only one deep breath in each pose, repeating for a total of 10 breaths on the right and then 10 breaths flowing on the left.
