Anxiety-Reducing Morning Practice

with Shari Friedrichsen

Style: Yoga Therapy

Duration: 30 min

Intensity: Low

Props: Blanket, Blocks

Class Description

Turn inward and calm your mind with this grounding morning practice. You’ll begin in a relaxing belly-down pose, cultivating a smooth, even, and continuous breath. Then, you’ll continue to activate the parasympathetic nervous system (‘rest and digest’) in a gentle sequence that includes slow cat-cows, a simple sun salute on your knees, and child’s pose.

Class concludes with a simplified variation of nadi shodhana (alternate nostril breathing) that allows you to focus on the flow of prana (vital energy) in each nostril.
