Yoga Flow for Acceptance: Open Hearts & Hips to Release Resistance + Pranayama

We start with a meditation to center ourselves and feel the resistance we feel toward a person or situation that we feel negatively toward. You might want to have a blanket, but that is optional.

This an all levels, 20-minute yoga flow to open hips with poses like pigeon and skandasana.

Then we do core work and open the heart and front of the body with balancing ball and purvottanasana. Then down to the floor for ball and bridge. We sit up in the end to practice sitkari pranayama which is a slow acceptance, a nod and a yes.

Use the mantras as you see fit.

Love and light for you.

  • 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.
