A Vinyasa Flow for an intermediate practitioner. This sequence works to lengthen and engage the the sides of the body and upper chest with the intention of moving into revolved postures and back bends. The legs and hips are also considered in the flow with several forward folds, lunges, and hip stretches.
This 45 minute, faster paced practice warms up with several sequences that leads up to pravitta ardha chandrasana (revolved half moon), (revolved standing pigeon), ustrasana (camel pose), danurasana (bow), janusirsasana, and finally (revolved half lotus with bind).
In this video I do not use blocks or a strap however if available they may be very helpful with the binds and foward folds. For danurasana (bow pose) I use a thicker couch pillow as a bolster under my lower rib cage/upper belly. My philosophy on props is to use whatever is available and helpful.
