Yoga For WINTER
Yoga for Winter will warm, circulate, and invigorate.
As the winter wears on and cold, hard qualities predominate, you may need to pick up the pace a bit to keep the juices flowing.
Especially in the morning, do some joint rotations, sun salutations, and standing postures- until sweat beings to form. Then enjoy the internal gaze as winter drives the energy to the core of the body.
Seated postures such as veerasana, sankatasana, and forward bends such as paschimottanasana and childs pose will bring on a meditative vibe.
