To finish off this month of purification, our classes for the week were geared toward clearing out the old to make space for the new – in a compassionate manner.
From this intention, the Compassionate Vinyasa was created. A twist on last week’s flow, this sequence focuses on the region of the heart to remind us to move with kindness in our pursuit of revitalization. Just in time for spring!
Again, be sure to do a little warming up first with Cat/Cow, Side Stretching &/or Child’s Pose before transitioning to the flow below:
Anjali Mudra to Standing Cactus to Uttanasana to 1/2 Uttanasana to High Lunge to Crescent Lunge to Virabhadrasana II to Wide Angle Urdhva Hastasana
Pivot to the left and reverse the sequence:
Virabhadrasana II to Crescent Lunge to High Lunge to 1/2 Uttanasana to Uttanasana to Standing Cactus to Anjali Mudra
Once again, I have included a visual diagram (by popular demand) here.
As you glide through your sequence, keep in mind this beautiful quote by Wyatt Townley:
“Take this opportunity to begin to shed your outer layers, your coverings…Find the way back to center, flesh, muscle, bone, to the river that underlies us, solid and fluid…”
Namasté my friends.
