Naturalist John Muir once said, "The sun shines not on us but in us." With this sentiment in mind, Two Fit Moms honors Monday's summer solstice (the first day of summer and the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere) and Tuesday's International Day of Yoga with this heat-producing flow. After each pose in this sequence, you will return to Warrior II. Rather than holding Warrior II for just a few breaths, as is typical in many flow classes, you will maintain a strong stance for a full minute. By holding this posture, you will generate heat, build strength, and train your ability to focus and find stillness. Consider adding a few rounds of Sun Salutations at the beginning of this flow to celebrate the sun and welcome summer. Close your practice with some seated/supine stretches and a well-deserved Savasana.
