14-Minute Afternoon Energizing Flow
Poses like skandasana and wide-legged forward fold, warrior 3 and other heart-opening, core-working poses. This a great mix of forward folding to release neck tension while energizing the body and core.
Afternoon slumps happen, and instead of reaching for caffeine or dragging around the rest of the day, we can heat things up and power through. This allows us to sleep well at night, wake up refreshed for the next day, and maybe never even hit an afternoon slump the next day.
But if you do, you can always come back to this practice.
One thing I would like to say here is that Manduka is my favorite yoga brand. I’m using a different mat here because I keep my Manduka at the studio, but my favorite mat and all other props are all Manduka, coming from a yoga teacher who’s tried a lot of stuff. I get asked about yoga brands a lot, and this is my answer. Just saying.
As for clothes, I get a lot of my stuff from Yoga Outlet because they have a wide selection, plus good deals and promotions sometimes.
MEDITATION & YOGA:
Crystals and gems are highly interactive with their environments. They absorb, store and emit energy and information. Because of their stable makeup, they can store all kinds of information and emit it out into the world. They react to the input of someone's energy and information (like a mantra or intention). Likewise, they emit a certain vibration frequency that could alter the energy field (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual) of the person or other energy form in their immediate environment.
This obviously leads to energetic change. Healing, uplifting, cleansing, empowering, inspiring, energizing, magnifying, balancing, restoring. Depending on the crystal with its specific benefits and your own intention, a crystal could be your catalyst. Powerful tools for meditation and yoga. I get my crystals from a great source: Click here to shop Sage Goddess Collectible Crystals.
Yoga mat and accessories? This question comes up a lot from my students. When it comes to mats, props, and other little needs for meditation and yoga, my favorite brand for mats and accessories has always been Manduka. Durable, comfortable, well-made. I love Manduka.
This is an easy question for me to answer! Yoga Outlet has all the stuff. A lot of brands, a lot of discounts, plenty of sales, great customer service. I’ve never had a problem with them, and they have the biggest selection. I wear most of the stuff I have bought from Yoga Outlet every day.
Comment below about your experience with this practice! It got a little messy there in the middle but might have provided a little relief for a busy day.
