Quick Yoga Flow to Uplift When Stuck in Negativity
No props needed in this quick video designed to enliven you and bring you out of a funk.
About 14 minutes to feeling better and uplifting your energy when negativity has got you down. We journey from the floor all the way up to standing.
Core work and then heart opening with some breathing through the back of the body in ardha hanumanasana. We get some twisting and heart opening done with twisted anjaneyasana, heart opening variation as we resist the foot with the hand and the hand with foot, or at least try to take hold.
This twisting of the spine calms the nervous system and helps us to let go of negative energy, deeply breathing to let go through the exhale.
We end up standing in a backbend and residing in mountain pose. Option to stay standing for breath of fire pranayama (more rhythmic than I do it in the video because I seem to go faster and faster with it) or to sit down any way you like.
Please don't do breath of fire if you are pregnant or suffer any serious illness or condition such as diabetes or high blood pressure.
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 (including my favorite little yoga shorts above) 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.
