Your back and core support you in your every move, so why not support and strengthen them with this short and fiery flow? We'll move through core and back strengthening exercises while elongating and stretching the back and major muscle groups. Make sure to listen to your body and move from a place of self love!
Add a twist to your flow. We work to a hip-opening dancing warrior flow with a twist, and then take it deeper into the hips with side angle and some extra hip-opening in a side-plank variation. Between the hips and the twists, you'll feel like you're leaving it alll on the mat. Sweat it out and get it out.
Build yourself a new bridge for stronger hips and hamstrings. We start with a blanket under the hips to traction the low back. Add some leg extensions to open up the front body and prepare you for a bridge with your feet on a chair. This shift of ground will increase your awareness - as all new things do! - and builds more strength in hips and hamstrings than your boring old bridge. With practice, you will feel yourself rising higher and feeling stronger. This boost of strength will have you feeling more light and more stable in your basic bridge. And stronger hips and hamstrings will also translate into better balance and more fun in other poses!
The theme is nurturing yourself. A perfect practice for days when you feel low on energy but still want to build some nice heat and get a sweet stretch. Maybe you have a headache like I did while filming this, maybe you're fighting or recovering from a cold, or maybe it's just been a tough day! Can you give yourself what you need? Are you able to practice self-compassion? Explore these ideas as we move and breathe together and open every major muscle group. A nice savasana awaits!

Ease on in to the practice with some reclining hip opening and gentle twisting, then build into a slow flow with ample shoulder opening woven in throughout.
