Welcome to your Fall Ayurveda Yoga Challenge! In Day 1, enjoy this creative sequence challenging coordination as we explore the movements of the joints of the body. We move dynamically through familiar shapes encouraging greater range of motion and creating space in the spine, the legs, wrists, ankles, knees, and hips, starting and ending the practice with Sama Vritti (4-part breathing).
Your Self Care Homework Challenge for Day 1:
Initiate your self care routine by starting the day with these simple steps:
- Move your joints: Exercise the joints of the body to improve overall circulation, decrease the stress that builds up during the day, and get better sleep.
- Drink water: Drink room temperature or warm water in the morning with lemon or apple cider vinegar to increase the digestive fire.
- Oil the skin: Apply coconut or olive oil to the skin to calm the nervous system, combat dryness, and protect you from the external environment. Add a drop of your favorite calming essential oil (lavender, vetiver, rose) for added enjoyment.
