This week we will be incorporating the Focus Effect with a strong and invigorating vinyasa practice. Vinyasa translates to “to place (the body) in a special way,” but the poses aren’t stagnant. They intelligently transition and flow to create balance and harmony within the practitioner. The poses are also linked to the breath, and this creates the mind-body connection. Vinyasa is paced faster than all the previous practices, but once you have these 10 steps down, you will feel stronger and more connected to yourself.
I will be breaking down the sun salutation for you today. It is a 10-step movement that can be done as many times as the practitioner wishes. It promotes strength, flexibility, energy, and it can be incorporated into any exercise routine. It has a small learning curve, but once you get it, it can be a very meditative practice. I like to do it anywhere from 5-10 times per session with other poses sprinkled in order to boost my mood and energy for the day.
Things you will need: Focus effect of your choice, a mat and your body! Let’s get started.
Try this sequence slowly and within your range. Once you find the rhythm, allow the long breaths to guide the movements. Do it as many times as it feels good and be sure to take breaks in between. I hope you enjoyed my series, see you again soon!
