Jetlag Sequence

Available worldwide

This practice with Annie Carpenter will gently open your hips and hamstrings and stabilize your sacrum and lower back. Perfect after traveling or too much sitting; you’ll feel both grounded and released. With the right mix of flowing movement and longer holds to engage your core, you’ll invert for several minutes in headstand and then a sweet cool-down will have you ready to sleep.

Contraindications: Inversion – healthy neck and shoulders, good eye health and steady blood pressure. For menstruation take alternative pose.

After hours of driving through the mountains this practice was the perfect release I was looking for! My low back and front body feel balanced and the neck and shoulders got a wonderful release as well. Thank you again Annie :-) Namaste

I had to "do my own thing" during the headstand portion, but otherwise enjoyed this sequence. This was my first class with Annie - I like her clear and direct instructions, and her calm voice. The pace was perfect and I feel refreshed and ready to face the remainder of the day. Thank you!

Great class, Annie. I could follow everything easily - can see why they call you a Teacher's teacher! Thanks.

Really enjoyed the class, but wish there was an explanation of what dolphin looks like. Ready for a good night sleep after yesterday travel and 3hr transition
