Awaken the Flow

Available worldwide

In this opening and grounded practice, we’ll come home in our bodies and tune into a way of being that is more receptive, resourced and open to possibility. Through breath and asana, we will jump start the body, lubricate the joints and wake up the spirit so that you can take on your day. Come ready to move, feel and ignite the flow. This video is part of our Yoga for Busy Moms practice guide.

With live music from Damon the Zen Drummer

I feel much looser and more relaxed before a day of hard work. The drumming was a great addition too :)

But would have liked some warm up's for the joints before setting off into strong pose at the beginning. Was a nice flow to the practice. thankyou.

I have shoulder and wrist issues, so the first pose was a challenge and I thought this might not be the practice for me. I modified that one, but was able to keep up with the rest. Enjoyed this practice and look forward to doing it again.

I actually did this practice after a late nap to get me going for the rest of my day. I always enjoy when we are invited to set an intention for the practice. My intention was to connect with my body and through my body, my spirit. This practice helped me to do just that. Loved the drumming too!

Clear instructions, energizing flow at a great pace, yummy stretch for the hamstrings and hips - great practice to get the day started! Thank you, Kerri. Would love to see a new class from you. :-)

Soooo good, the drums really added to the rhythm of the practice, saved to favorites as not only did I find it really energizing for the day ahead but also grounding. Thanks Kerri; hope to see more of your classes here soon.

Loved this flow. Just the right length for my busy schedule and got me warmed up and destressed.

I got such a deep connection with this class this evening - to my intention, to feeling grounded, to being present, to my breath. Thank you for a fabulous class - intended for mornings but great for evenings too!

I think your understanding that breathing for each pose ins't just a quick inhale/exhale but rather breathe....makes you a stand out instructor. I look forward to using each of your videos.

Anna108, posted on September 14, 2012
