studio BE is pleased to offer a variety of yoga and meditation practices to help calm your nerves and soothe your spirit during this unprecedented time.
Join Rachel for this 60-minute all-levels flow inspired by springtime busting out all over. We'll move through a rhythmic, heat-building standing series, including Natarajasana (Dancer's Pose) and Utthita Hasta Padangusthasana, cultivate energy with a variety of heart-openers, and close with a beautiful seated meditation from Sally Kempton's book Awakening Shakti. Be sure to unwind with a 5-7 minute savasana.
Let your breath drive your practice, feel free to modify (especially if you're pregnant, recovering from an injury, or new to yoga), skip vinyasas for a more mellow practice, and crank up some favorite background tunes.
Most importantly, remember to be gentle with yourself — and don't take yourself (or your yoga practice) too seriously.
