I teach a yoga class this evening, so today’s workout is a Yoga Flow. One Round of this flow takes 20 Minutes, but you can repeat it, or choose to pair it with another Yoga Workout. It’s been a busy workout week, so I am sure your body is ready to stretch and do a low intensity routine.
Yoga flows are wonderful because they work every muscle of the body, while simultaneously stretching and improving flexibility and blood flow. It can help improve your physical and psychological well being.
Tuesday: Better Booty Home Workout
Thursday: Yoga Stretch or Rest Day.
One of the most important aspects of yoga (which also applies to all other exercise as well) is improving your mind & body awareness. Keep yourself focused on each aspect of the pose/movement. Not only does this improve the physical benefits that you achieve during exercise, but it helps you to free your mind from worrying about the past or the future. Learning the ability to focus on just the present moment helps reduce stress and improve your ability to handle unexpected events.
I hope you enjoy today’s workout flow. Let me know how you are feeling on Instagram or Twitter: @BenderFitness or Facebook: www.facebook.com/MelissaBenderFitness
