The next Whole Life Challenge starts in:

Follow along with this five-minute yoga-inspired, but not-quite-totally-yoga flow. It is an intermediate level sequence, but you can make adjustments to your flexibility and fitness level.

This hamstring and hip flow is the perfect antidote to all those hours of sitting – be it at a desk, in your car, on the couch, or on public transit. It will open your hips, lengthen your hamstrings, open your spine, and ask you to transition through a variety of positions. These are all great things for preventing low-back pain, increasing hip mobility, and generally amping up your energy level.

This flow is also a great antidote for the stress of your day. Getting your body moving, flowing, and breathing may just put a smile on your face. Breathe deep and follow along!

Remember each human body works a little differently. Your body will move differently than mine, and each of us will move through the transitions in slightly unique ways. Listen to your body as you follow along, don’t let your ego into your practice, and keep your training productive.
