I love yoga. If I hadn't, I wouldn't have made it such a huge presence in my life. But there are certain styles I love more than others. Yin? It's up there. Power? Just under yin. But my absolute fave? The type with no mat and lots of creative sequencing.
When I practice this type of yoga, it's always on my own. I've tried to teach it but it's hard because it's pretty advanced and people get really confused when I turn them facing away from the front of the room. I go into it never really knowing what will happen, use my breath as the soundtrack, and just roll with whatever happens. Here are a few of my most recent practices. I've broken them down in the text below each video in case you wanted to play with it on your own.
Flow: handstand, crow, jumpback, up dog, down dog, knee to forehead, wild thing, side plank variation, split, 3 leg dog, high lunge, standing pigeon with a twist, standing pigeon variation with leg cradled in arms (there's probably an official name for this - anyone know?), flying pigeon, crow.
Let's talk - I'd love to know what your favorite transitions are and what your favorite flow sequences are at the moment!
