Get Started

Breathe: Cultivate Ujjayi breath. Breathing slowly through your nose, slightly constrict the back of your throat and begin to heat the body with intentional breath. Let the sound and warming temperature of your breath be your anchor into your body.
Warm up: Start with 3 rounds each of Sun Salutation A and Sun Salutation B.
