This is a super short flow and it’s very powerful because you will feel how your legs get a better range of movement and it’s quite nice to start linking everything you know about yoga, even if it’s a little bit.
This ab exercise is SO perfect because you’re worried for your balance instead of your core, but for achieven *that* balance YOU NEED YOUR CORE, so you’re working out the abs while paying attention to something else! And you’re working out MORE than your abs!
This is not the traditional path to get in a forward fold, but this no-traditional way actually helped me faster than the other options.
One thing is having a routine to do every day like the sun salutation but following free online yoga classes allows me to find other asanas and other compilations to appreciate my body and its mechanical properties. I followed some YouTube classes because they’re convenient for a beginner.
Since the legs are well grounded in the mat, it’s okay if you tight your core to support the asana and play with your arms to stretch the back and open your heart for longer.
