Section 2
  • Start your day well with this steady-paced, well-rounded practice to wake up your body and mind with kindness. Begin lying down in savasana, and then move into gentle grounded poses before standing up to build strength and energy. Close the practice with grounded backbends, twists, and finally savasana again. Come back to this practice each morning to support a great day! Props: 2 blocks (optional)
