17-Minute Flow to Explore Your 5 Bodies (Level 2/3)
This practice is more challenging. It's a Level 2/3 because of the tripod headstand in the middle. BUT if it's not in your practice, you can try for it or skip it. So it's accessible for everyone, really.
This vinyasa flow is made of 5 different separate flows for each of the bodies or sheaths or kosha in sanskrit.
Enjoy extended side angle, warrior 2 and wide legged forward fold followed by temple with ujayi breathing, then we move onto forward folding into tripod headstand, and then child's pose flowing into cobra. Then it's capped off by a happy baby and savasana.
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.
