Menses Sequence for Ashtanga Yogis

Restorative with Jodi Blumstein

Level 1 90 mins

Ashtanga yoga is meant to be practiced consistently - 6 days a week. It is traditional to take the 2 moon days off each month as well, and for women the first days of their menstrual cycle. During these rest days its nice to do a restorative practice (we always feel better when we do something!) This sequence is designed specifically for this time, and will leave you feeling re-energized and your hips and back open. You need many props for this - but not all are absolutely necessary. A blanket, strap - 2 - 3 blocks, and if you have a chair or back-bending whale bench this is a bonus.
