Morning Kapha-Pacifying Yoga

November 8, 2013    BY Kathryn Templeton

Stimulate and fire up your kapha with this active morning practice. It starts with the ayurvedic style of bhastrika pranayama (bellows breath), in which the torso opens and contracts with the breath. Kathryn then guides you through two variations of sun salutation, coordinating movement with the breath. She suggests modifications to the postures to accommodate different levels of students. The practice concludes with a stomach squeeze and child’s pose.

Props: block or blanket for child’s pose (optional).

Audio and video downloads are available for Digital Members.
