How To: Modified Vinyasa Flow

Step 1: From downward facing dog, bring yourself forward into a plank position on an inhale breath.  Shoulders over the wrists, legs strong and straight, core engaged. (*be sure not to collapse through your low back)  

Step 2: On the exhale, lower your knees to the floor and un-tuck your toes.  Keeping your elbows hugging into your side ribs, lower your chest, and then your hips to your mat.

 

Step 3: Using your core, inhale to lift your chest away from the floor hugging your shoulder blades together.

 

Step 4:  Root down through your palms, and on the exhale, lift up onto your hands and knees, tuck your toes under and lift your hips back to downward facing dog.
