Intensity Meets Chill: A Free Sunday Sweaty Yoga Sesh For You.

jack canfield, the success principlesIt’s a beautiful sunday morning of the July long weekend. I’ve had the time and space to work, spend time with friends, do some much needed upgrades around the house and most importantly, carve out some time for myself.

To that end, I’m rocking a fresh mani pedi, I made it through 10 chapters of The Success Principles, my garden is looking a little fancier and just now, I got my yoga on.

I picked something fast and furious to kick my butt in gear. I’ve been wide awake since 4am this morning, something that’s starting to happen on the regular lately (which seriously blows), but I”m going with it. I figure I can just get my day started early and ended early (there’s nothing like a 7:45pm bedtime, right?).

I wanted to share the yoga sesh I found on YouTube with you. I thought it was a really creative take on fusing HIIT style exercise with traditional yoga poses – something I think has awesome benefits for “booty and mind”. I will say however, I think some of her transitions could be a little safer as she goes from some pretty intense cardio sequences to forward bends which is not the safest move to do from a heart perspective, but you guys are smart enough to modify if you need.

Anyway, I also like this gal because she’s not a talker. I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this before, but it drives me nuts when yoga teachers feel a need to explain everything in such minuet detail to the point that they never shut up. The constant chatter distracts me from going inward, which is kinda the point of the whole thing.  First world problems, I know…

So here you go. Fast and furious like I said, but really cool. Let me know what you think!

Hope you had an awesome long weekend!

Namaste

    Now I know why you were commenting so early this morning. I was dang girl, aren’t you on the West Coast. I’m impressed, and I’m glad you had a glorious weekend with you time, reading and gardening. It sounds kind of ideal.

    Can’t wait to check out this HIIT yoga. This looks sweet.

    Sounds like you had the perfect weekend! I’m starting to wake up earlier as well but unfortunately my going to bed time is still the same… I’m having trouble going to bed at a normal time even though I’m tired! I’ll do my best to follow your lead in that regards… okay, maybe not 7:45 pm but I’ll be happy to be in bed by 10:30 (wake up 5:30)

    Yoga is one of those things that I always mean to start and never do! I would also dislike (hate) very much to be in a class when the instruction is chatty. Totally get what you’re saying.

    Have a great week!
