Evening Yoga Practice
Unwind from your busy day and turn your attention inward with this calming evening yoga practice. Center with kaya sthira (absolute stillness and steadiness), train the mind with slow movements with breath, and work on extending the exhalation through soothing chants. End the practice by choosing between a restful or an active inversion, legs resting on a chair, or variations of the shoulder stand. Conclude with a restful relaxation and experience a deep sense of stillness—ready for a good night’s sleep.
Props: 2 blankets (optional)
Audio and video downloads are available for Digital Members.
