Embrace and celebrate the season by honoring the practices that create light and joy for you, and by sharing these gifts with others. This series of flowing sequences can help you do so by bringing you back to your center and igniting the energy you want to radiate. They emphasize hugging in to your body’s centerline and focusing on your breath. Throughout, you’ll also activate your core and shed stress with heat-building standing poses, twists, dynamic backbends, and deep hip openers.
Have a block handy. Move with your breath to awaken energy and focus. Cultivate Ujjayi Pranayama: Breathing slowly through your nose, slightly constrict the back of your throat so you feel the breath’s texture. As you expand your breathing, set your intention for your practice. Create space for celebration and joy.
