Heart Opening Low Body Flexibility+Stability Flow

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 ❤️🙏🏻

(Inhale) slowly raise your left leg behind you; Warrior 3. Pause for a second in W3 and get long and strong in the pose.

(On an Exhale) slowly lower all the way down to the knee low Lunge

(On an Inhale) open the front body, raise the arms, lean back, cactus the arms, try not to compress the low back.

(On an Exhale) rise up and simultaneously fold into pyramid

(On an Inhale) Lunge forward and come into half moon. Take your time

(On another Inhale) slowly bring your leg around to hook your heel above your right knee. This will take a few inhales/exhales, just concentrate and so your best

(Exhale) settle into figure 4/galavasana. Stay here a bit for a nice stretch in the outer left him

(On an Inhale) grab your left be toe with your left fingers and stand stretching your foot out in front of you. When you’re ready look right and extend your left leg to the left. She. You’re ready, rotate your foot/hand to stretch your quad.

Repeat on the other side.

    It is not easy, in short, we still talk about yoga positions here and I admit that it takes a lot of mental and physical stability to succeed, but that’s the beauty.

    Doing exercise once a while is a true good on our health. I do exercise but it’s simple like stretching the legs and arms. I never do yoga but I want to try it 😊.
