There are many different styles of yoga including restorative, yin, hatha, bikram, and the list could go on. My personal preference is a vinyasa style which links breath with movement. This style of yoga can be done where a single pose is held only for the inhale and on the exhale you move into another pose, or you can hold a pose for a full round (or more) of breath. This flexibility in the movement allows for the same sequence of poses to be accessible for beginner and advanced yogis.
Today’s flow falls into that breath to movement category and is something that beginners and advanced students can both do. Check out the video as I run through our flow breath to movement, but know you can slow it down and hold each pose for a breath or two if that feels better in your body today. I like to go through this flow a few times to start my day.

Begin in a neutral tabletop position. Wrists should be under shoulders, knees under hips, and your gaze between your hands.
