Balance & Twist with Heart

This twisting, balancing flow is a litmus test. Each wobble and shift is a chance to see what reactions arise when our practice doesn’t flow quite as smoothly, as perfectly as we are used to. After a challenging flow, I follow with a series of asana focused on moving the thoracic spine and heart center deeper and deeper into flexion & extension, bringing focus and freedom to a space that holds a lot of tension from emotion and stress. When you leave the mat, you’ll have gained great insight into your current state of mind. Hopefully you’ll have also found a bit of freedom and ease from your reactions to the stimuli outside and within that challenge you, helping you move with more ease and confidence through your day.

Two videos worth watching prior to this practice: Balance & Twist: A No Dog Flow and Finding Staying Power in Camel. They’ll give you a great foundation for moving through this practice.
