Awakening the Spine Yoga Flow
The Thar Desert provides a wonderful backdrop to this yoga flow. During our time in Rajasthan, a western province of India, we could not help but feel invigorated by the landscape and the friendly people we met along our journey. As Yoga and Dance teachers, as well as travel writers and bloggers, we view our yoga practice as a life-long journey, an practical art and science we are always exploring.
Hatha Yoga is about balance. It is about drawing awareness from all over our body and shifting that awareness fluidly into each muscle, each movement of the flow. This flow incorporates many asanas and vinyasa that target the nervous system with an emphasis on breath awareness (pranayama). It is a challenging yoga flow and present in three parts from opening entering through to Savasana, focused relaxation.
