Loved this releasing sequence Alana. Truly grateful for your presence here. Blessings!
Thank you for your practice and presence, Simon. Have a wonderful day.
Thanks Alana! Having super tight hamstrings and this definitely helped! Love you videos!
Wonderful news, Jillian! So happy to know that we are practicing together. Keep me posted! xo Alana
Thankyou Alana - that was wonderful! I have Scoliosis and find the triangle pose quite challenging e.g to not bend forwards, but it does feel good as I am working on it!
Hi Glynis - Thank you so much for sharing. As someone who has scoliosis and has been practicing yoga for two decades, I find side bending, twists, and forward folds challenging and revealing of the "imbalances" in the body. The beautiful thing about a consistent yoga practice is that I can see and feel the immediate results from the practice... with my posture and breathing, and consciously work to develop inner strength, alignment, and compassion.
Thankyou for that - yes I feel so good during and after.
