Today’s workout is a Yoga Flow. It is important to find balance and variety in your workouts. It will help you to find balance in your body. For many people yoga is an entirely different type of challenge. It requires strength & it also works on flexibility. It is also a different kind of mental challenge.
During HIIT workouts the focus is on getting in as much as you can, and pushing your body for the maximum number of repetitions. In Yoga, the focus is on moving purposefully through each movement. Pay attention to your body, and how it feels during each exercise. Do not force any stretches or movements. Go as far as you are able to into each pose, without over stretching.
One of the most important components of yoga is the ability to tune into your body & be appreciative for what it is capable of right now. It’s not about being better than anyone else or worrying about the future. It is about tuning in to what is happening right now.
During your yoga flow, try to remain present throughout the workout, without worrying about the past or the future. If your mind wanders, it’s okay, just bring it back to your practice when you notice.
Have fun & stay focused! I have more new workouts headed your way for the weekend.
