It’s finally warming up here in the Hudson River Valley! The birds are chirping and making nests in our backyard. The flowers are blooming. The dog is lazing about while I do some yoga. The kids are at school. Timmy is sleeping. And all is peaceful and serene.
Decided to do a little lower body flexibility/stability slow motion flow because, well, I was feelin’ it! Sure hope you enjoy.
I decided to film this flow, guided, with breath cues instead of just writing it because I thought that would be way easier! But there’s an abridged written out version of the flow as well! Try not to get hung up on the breath cues. They’re meant to be a guide to help you move through the movements more fluidly ❤️🙏🏻
