I don’t know about you, but I’ve had a long week. It’s been a rollercoaster, but I still want to do some yoga.
Today we are not leaving the ground 😌

*While these are traditionally “forward bends,” in this video I am offering the variation of keeping your spine long. Please listen to your body and consult a physician for professional guidance regarding specific medical conditions. In forward bends, herniated or slipped discs can be aggravated. When in doubt, skip the pose!
Remember the one rule:
Listen. to. your. body. If something doesn’t feel right, don’t do it!
I highly encourage you to find a teacher that understands your needs. Having in-person and/or hands-on instruction will give you a solid foundation for your yoga practice.
