Yogis will be leaner than ever from performing this workout on the sand
We love our sticky mats, Krishna Das soundtrack, and
buckwheat eye pillow as much as the next downward-dogger, but taking
your practice to the beach is more like what the original yogis
intended more than 5,000 years ago. During this routine, press your feet and
hands firmly into the sand and spread your fingers and toes to hit
maximum lower-body muscle. Relax and enjoy. Just don't get so focused
that you forget your SPF!
Now is the time to get flexible
Spring is a great time to work on your flexibility. The weather is
getting warmer, flowers are reaching for the sky. It’s time to start a
conversation with those hibernating hamstrings. Try this lengthening
routine to move into the spring with more ease.
