Lazy, Happy Yoga: 20-Minute Restorative Class

lazy, happy yoga_ 20-Minute restorative yoga class.png

Props needed: A block, a strap, and a bolster.

Easy, level 1 class with those props. Mic is a little tinny at first, but past that is a simple, relaxing class with minimal effort. 

Savasana is cut off so continue for as long as you like, using the mantra and/or breath to center yourself into the content to be lazy now. 

Here's to being lazy. Here's to being happy. Content and happy to do nothing. Sometimes we need to stick it to the busyness of this world and enjoy the fullness of our being.

Using happy baby with strap and minimal effort, supported bridge pose to balance the thyroid, lazy bow pose with the strap and supported child's pose. 

Take it easy, rest in the breath and be content in the simplicity and emptiness of the moment. It's okay to do nothing. It's good to be lazy sometimes. Embrace it and enjoy 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.

If you are an experienced yogi and would like to do a little housecleaning and resetting, this free program will lift you right up:

 

OR if you are newer to yoga or need to get back into, this free program can help:

  • 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.
