Blissed-out yoga body!!!

Is it just me, or does it feel like summer?

Today in yoga class, beautiful Ms. Megan asked us to “pay attention to how your body is feeling”, noting that some areas of our body may “feel blissed-out.” Blissed-out?! I am all for made up words! Awesome! I swear, I had the hardest time not chuckling in class!

But there’s a truth in “blissed-out!” One of the best feelings in the world is to have your legs shaking, your arms jelly, and then melting into the floor during savasana. So today, I’m giving you a yoga routine that will kick your bootay, tone your muscles, and de-stress your Manic Monday! The pictures and descriptions are from Slim Calm Sexy Yoga by Tara Stiles, but I have put together the sequence myself

You will need a mat and water, a wall, and if you’re feeling it, some music. at the end of the workout, i’ve listed some songs that i love to play during my yoga practice

Sequence:

So now for some muuuuuuuusic! Here are some songs that I like to listen to while practicing yoga. Remember when I said that I want to teach a Pilates class to movie scores? (if not, click here) Well, the music that I use during yoga is from movie scores. You’re welcome. 😉


So now that your body is Blissed-Out, go out into the world and be your awesome self! ❤
