Toning Yoga Routine: Spiral Dynamic (intermediate level)

Designed and performed by Yoga Alliance certified teacher Sofia Belen.
This Yogea sequence is both empowering and stamina promoting as it encourages students to get in touch with the structural integration of all body parts while cultivating a sense of spiral dynamics. The toning and sculpting effect happens naturally as the core is ignited through various abdominal strengtheners and all the muscles, tendons, and ligaments are tended by a well-rounded palette of backbends, forward bends, twists, hip and shoulder openers. Special emphasis is placed on bound and twisted, standing and balancing postures. The sequence kicks off with a variation of full yogic breathing to integrate the physical and the subtle sheaths and then progresses into a centering warm up that zips the core, while massaging tendons and elongating the entire spine and the sides of the waist. Reclining arches provide a strong core and open the thoracic spine for deeper kneeling and standing backbends. Soothing forward bends bring the mind back into an introspective mode, and a gentle head rub activates the pineal and pituitary glands to elicit insight and intuitive intelligence. A progressive aura cleanse strikes the final cords of the sequence as you are asked to journey into the colorful spectrum of you chakra system and the interlocking spirals that allow you to ground and uplift.
