Core Sun Salutations
This redesign of the traditional vinyasa can be done between standing poses to ramp up the intensity of your practice. Learn to wave smoothly from your foundation, through your center, and up your spine and out to full expression, all the while protecting your low back by engaging your core.
Flying Warrior Flow
We know that truth is relative; you can choose what you want yours to be. When you're feeling blah, it's easy to believe the negative. Why not turn that notion upside down by practicing making yourself feel as fluid and juicy as possible on the mat? Find empowerment through fluid movement—and honoring what feels right to you—in this standing flow practice.
Double Time Flow
Don't have time for an hour-long practice? No problem. In this practice, you'll do double-time and work both your upper and lower body in each pose.
Go-Slow and Feel-It Flow
This practice is all about feeling the burn, and moving toward it. You're going to fire up your lower body, fatiguing each side with Side Angle Pose and its variations, followed by twists. When your glutes and quads start screaming, embrace the sensation and play your transformative edge mindfully. Watch what happens.

I loved the 21 day yoga challenge and revisit many of the videos weekly. I nervously chose intermediate and I could tell a big difference by the end of the challenge. I am so proud that I can now lift myself into Wheel Pose which I absolutely could not do before. My next goal is to lift both toes into Crow Pose. I found each instructor calming and informative - I played the videos on my phone and the instruction is so thorough that I hardly have to look at the video to see what is going on. I just joined the WillPower Challenge and can't wait to begin.

Thanks to all the wonderful instructors and to Yoga Journal.
