I had such incredible feedback and outreach from when I shared my favorite smoothie recipe, that I figured I should share some more of my favorites and go-to’s. Keep in mind that all of these and more health habit development will be in my ebook scheduled to come out by the end of summer this year! AH.
So, this sequence is used by me A LOT when I’m practicing at home and warming up for deeper strengthening and stretching postures as well as in my sequences at the studio because it covers all your bases. Core strength, back strength, legs, arms, the mind and so much more.
So, again, enjoy! and SHARE it. I love sharing and everyone needs more yoga.
