Yoga Sequences, Cycle 2 – Sport Specific Flows: Week 12, 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.

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 12, Day 3

“It’s not stress that kills us, it is our reaction to it.” 

~ Hans Selye ~

To begin, find a comfortable posture for meditation.

It may be helpful to set a timer for 5-10 minutes for this practice.
Place your hands on your knees, with your palms facing up.
Scan your body for any areas of tension or tightness. Pay special attention to any tightness in your neck, mouth, and jaw area.
Begin to feel your body and mind relax as you deepen your breath.
Visualize a dial in your mind. On this dial you see a stress indicator. Imagine that with each breath you exhale you slowly turn the dial from high stress to a more Zen-like state of mind.
With each breath feel a sense of serenity flow through the body.
Allow each breath to turn the dial in small increments, finding a sense of relaxation with each breath.
Stay here with this meditation for 10-15 minutes.
