Check Your Emissions

One of the intents I work with frequently in my Yoga practice and when I am engaging in group activities is to track what kind of energy of smog I am emitting. When I am indulging my bullshit I tend to emit a disgusting energy that suffuses my projects, actions, and interactions when I am like this. I use the intent of running the kind of energy that I want more of in my life to help shift things up a gear and to bring the poses to life in a new way.
Below is a sequence I like to use to boost my energy. Big energy poses, fun transitions and time to warm up. Sparkle up!

If the B – Series cooks your arms too fast, omit the arm balances and save for the handstand at the end. I feel great when I add an inversion at the end to get my heart beating faster.
