There’s no doubt we’ve all just experienced the most stressful year we’ve ever had. Life as we knew it changed drastically and some of the things we love the most were all put on hold, including our in-person yoga experience. Luckily we were still able to keep shooting our yoga videos online and delivering you the best yoga videos online.
Stress is sneaky. Sometimes we don’t even know we’re stressed, but our body has to processes it whether we realize it or not. Since stress is often unconscious we end up dealing with it in some not-so-great ways. Wine, anyone? To take the edge off we turn to alcohol or other unhealthy behaviors that end up creating more stress. It’s a cycle that could keep going around and around forever.
Roll out your mat and try the following classes to let go of stress in a healthy way. Warning: You’ll likely float off your mat and feel light as a feather afterwards.
60-minute online vinyasa yoga with Jon Old-Rowe. This steady sequence will melt all of your stress away both mentally and physically. Move at a slower pace than other vinyasa classes. Feel each pose from your head to your toes.
Firstly, longer holds in plank, side plank and chaturanga will challenge your core and build upper body strength. Secondly, flow through deep lunges to prep the body for a deep virasana, or hero’s pose. This is done at the end of class when the body is ready. And finally, enjoy a warrior 2 inspired standing flow series with subtle hip movements to open up the groin, lower back and side body in a whole new way.
Jon helps you to maintain your focus on long, deep breaths throughout class. This will leave you feeling strong, light and renewed through your whole being.
