For Day 1 of #WarmUpYourAsana
I chose to do a flow that really activates not only the core, but also the whole body, and by the end of it you definitely feel the burn!! 🔥🌟❤️ Let me know in the comments how it felt for you, if you give it a try! 😅
I start in #navasana
with straight legs for a few breaths.
Then I lower down to #ardhanavasana
(which, despite it’s name, is equally challenging, if not more - depending on which muscles are stronger/weaker in your body). I alternate between the two a few times, always moving slowly and with as much control as I can. For an added challenge you can straighten the arms along the ears. Another option is to clasp the hands behind the head, making sure you keep lifting the chest up.
You can also choose to play with the legs wide, arms reaching in the middle. You could try bending the knees, flexing the feet and pointing the toes out at a 45 degree angle for an external hip rotation, while the fingertips reach forward or up towards the ceiling.
Then the fun bit comes - I decided to play with twisting to one side and placing the palms of my hands on the mat in a plank-like position, and then revolving my whole torso around so that I’m in plank facing the back of the mat. After holding plank for a few breaths, I then engage the core to twist again and lower the hips back down in the center of the mat, revolving the torso back around to face forward, coming into Navasana once again, legs and arms straight and chest lifting up towards the sky. Repeat a few times on both sides and feel the burn in your core, side body, obliques, as well as the arms and legs! ❤️🔥💪🏻
