Yoga Sequences, Cycle 2 – Sport Specific Flows: Week 1, Day 3

This cycle of yoga sequences is designed with athletes in mind. Each week’s practice focuses on a different sport, with short flows for recovery and longer practices to go deeper into poses.

These workouts are designed by Breaking Muscle founder Mindith Rahmat. Mindith is an RYT 500 Certified Yoga Therapist, certified CrossFit coach, and long time fitness enthusiast with extensive experience in Russian kettlebells and bodyweight exercise.

Welcome to the new Yoga sequence workout. Here you will find different cycles and sequences programmed by an expert yoga teacher. These yoga sequences provide a blueprint or yoga map for teachers and students.

This cycle of the Yoga Sequences workout will focus on Sport Specific yoga sequences. Each sport in this program will have two sequences per week. The short sequences will range between 15- 30 minutes and can be added on to the end of a sport session, workout, or short rest day. The longer sequences, ranging from 75-90 minutes, are great for rest and recovery days and will include a deeper practice with standing poses and seated poses.

The sequences will be posted on Tuesday and Thursday, with a meditation once a week on Sundays.

Week 1, Day 3: Restful Sleep Meditation

Restful Sleep Meditation

Find a quiet and comfortable space where you can perform this meditation. 

Close your eyes and begin to relax you body and breath.

Take 10 deep breaths in and out through your nose.

Focus all of your attention on counting your breath.

Repeat this practice for 10 rounds of counting 10 deep breaths.

Try not to worry if you loose count or focus, just keep coming back to your breath. 

Clear your mind of all internal and external thoughts focusing only on counting each breath as you inhale and exhale.

Keep focusing on lengthening each breath. Let each breath flow in slower, deeper, and longer.

Gently make your way to sleep.
