Description

What would it feel like to experience more flow, circulation, and movement through your body? Alana guides us in a slow and steady twisting sequence where we tune our awareness towards the inner currents and align from within. We find more space through the chest, shoulders, and heart, before flowing into Surya Namaskar A & B variations (Sun Salutations). We continue to move with our breath through a series of standing twist postures, closing with a dynamic Parivrtta Janu Sirsasana (Revolved Head-to-Knee Pose). You will feel calm, stretched, and at ease in your natural flow.

Hello! I am still a level 1 beginner and have a question about how the feet are aligned in the twisted lunge poses in the middle of the routine beginning at minutes 17 and 19. Are the feet in one line (as in the warrior positions) or are they in line with each hip? And how is your weight supposed to be distributed ? I can't tell, and find this very difficult to do. ( I keep falling over!) Thanks.
Hello Meredith! Great question. First of all, being willing to fall over in your yoga practice is key to learning and transformation. So great job! As far as the standing width between your feet in twisting lunge, it really depends on each person's body type and preference. I suggest starting with your feet hip-width apart for a more stable stance, which means as you step back into your lunge, pause, and try toe-heeling your foot slightly wider, plant your opposite hand on the floor, and then move into your twist. Let me know how it goes!
Thanks Alana. Great class - I felt so deeply grounded afterwards. Perfect instruction as well.
I love the elegant simplicity of your morning yoga practices. It helps me to start my day with ease, and to remember that everything doesn't need to feel complicated and rushed. Thank you for the great tone to start the day.
