SaraBethYoga: 20 Minute Full Body Morning Yoga Stretch | SUNRISE YOGA

20 Minute Full Body Morning Yoga Stretch | Sunrise Yoga is a really nice and gentle yoga practice from Sara Beth. I loved it and it was just what I needed this morning. My entire body is sore from a week of Caroline Girvan‘s Beastmode workouts, plus my feet hurt from being on them all day yesterday (I have screws and plates in both heels). This practice gave me some gentle, feel good stretching and no complicated poses. I felt really good by the end. I followed this up with Sara’s 10 Minute Deep Stretch Yoga for Hips which is a short yin yoga practice to really open your hips up. Together, they did an excellent job working out some of my soreness and left me feeling so good and refreshed.
