In this 35 minute Vinyasa class, Mary Lou takes you through the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Chakras for Grounding & Support, Fluidity & Freedom and to Stand in Your Power. First you’ll get grounded through breath and body connection with a few seated stretches and cat/cow. Next Surya Namaskar to warm up, and then a repetitious sweet fluid flow of warrior 1 & 2, extended side angle and high lunge. You’ll then step into your power with Chair Pose. A few seated forward folds to cool you down before you release in Savansana. This practice will release tension and resistance within the body & mind. It is great for beginners who want to become more familiar with yoga and like a bit of a challenge.
