Yoga For winter
Yoga for winter will warm and invigorate the body.
Yoga for winter should warm the body without stressing the joints. Apply warm sesame oil to the skin and take a warm/hot shower before practice. Focus on standing postures, squats, slow flows, and deep Savasanas.
As we get into the late winter and the body stiffens, begin to increase the holds or the pace, concentrate on deep breathing, and move more. Encourage a bit of sweating.
