SaraBethYoga: 20 minute Full Body Morning Yoga Stretch & Flow for Mobility

20 Minute Full Body Morning Yoga Stretch & Flow for Mobility is another feel good yoga flow from Sara Beth. There are no complicated or advanced poses in this workout, but it is also one of her more active practices (that I have done, at least). In fact, there is no laying down or child’s poses in this workout. It is all done standing or kneeling. This practice consists of two vinyasas that Sara builds. The first flow takes about 7 minutes and the final flow takes up the remaining 13 minutes. During both flows she builds it slowly the first time through, holding each pose for several breaths, then you run through the flow a second time at a quicker pace. It is definitely a feel good practice that will give you mobility and flexibility work.

20 Minute Full Body Morning Yoga Stretch & Flow for Mobility is 21:20 minutes. The practice is actually 20 minutes long. The last minute is Sara talking about one of her other yoga practices. Equipment: fitness mat. Sara shows modifications to make some of the poses even easier.
