Yoga Before Big Meals

Vinyasa Flow | By Jo Tastula on Nov 23 2010
This is a great pre-holiday class, perfect to take before eating any  
big meals!!  Before we start the flow, take a moment to allow the  
atmospheres around you and within you to mix and merge.  Becoming one  
with your space.  Then it's a nice steady flowy flow that builds into  
a dancing warrior sequence using warrior 1 & 2, reverse warrior &  
extended side angle pose (Virabhadrasana 1 & 2, Utthita  
Parsvakonasana).  We work the actions of side plank (vasistasana) and  
build to side plank tree (vasistasana vrksasana).   Use the heat of  
the flow to open the chest, lungs and heart with these tasty backbends  
~ locust pose,bow & bridge (Salabhasana, Danurasana & Setu Bandha....  
Urdhva Danurasana is optional!)  Finish with pose of your choice ~ hip  
opener or inversion.  Happy Holidays!
