Pacifying kapha in the evening is tricky! We want to wind down before sleep, but we also want to get rid of any congestion or sluggishness. That’s why the first part of this practice is quite active and the last part is restorative. The active sequence includes Breath of Joy (vigorous breathing plus movement), as well as a “moon” salutation and supported twist (both with ujjayi breathing). The session ends with a supported, reclining bound angle pose that opens the chest.
Props: for active sequence, 1-2 blocks (optional); for restorative pose, 4 blocks, 4 blankets, and a bolster.
