Today’s workout is a Yoga Flow (the video is below). This is a great one to help improve your flexibility and build strength in your body at the same time.
Several studies have shown that people who practice yoga regularly are more aware of their bodies hunger signals and are less likely to overeat. Also, yoga helps increase awareness of the body which improves execution of exercises and physical movements.
I hope you guys enjoy this flow. I had fun filming it and it felt great to stretch. I really need to work on getting my flexibility back. I am going to create a basic flexibility stretch routine that can be done daily.
I will be sharing my progress and Jesse’s progress with the stretching. Of course you are welcome to join us. 🙂
Flexibility can help prevent biomechanics imbalances that cause injury, and it can help protect your muscles. Make a little bit of time to fit it into your schedule!
See you later with a new workout!
PS I haven’t tried Flying Pigeon Pose in a long time so I decided to give it a whirl. It wasn’t the prettiest because I haven’t practiced in a long time, and my hip flexors have lost some flexibility. Here is the starting picture. Hopefully after I incorporate my stretching routine I will be able to flatten out my back, hold through the core, and lift the leg a little bit higher.

I was so excited to see a new yoga flow last week and this is my 2nd time doing this one. 🙂 I absolutely love your yoga flows–they are some of my favorite workouts that I come back to over and over again–especially after intense workouts! Keep em coming and know they are very appreciated!!!! (as are all your workouts–I am almost an exclusive “bender girl!” This is definitely my go-to workout site–I am seriously so grateful for you.)
This was wonderful! Feel so much better after doing this flow. Thank you so much! You are truly a life saver!
Awesome! I have been a regular Bender Fitness follower for nearly two years, and I never get bored. Your workouts are always varied and challenging – thank you!
I was not feeling well today and just could not wrap my head around a run or HIIT workout, but this was perfect. Thanks!
