My morning began at 6 a.m. with a refreshing and challenging 60 minute Vinyasa at Trufusion Summerlin.
Led by Heidi Otero, this non-heated flow began in child’s pose as we began to ground ourselves into the room and within our breath.
“You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control” – Elizabeth Gilbert
Heidi recited this quote and encouraged us to focus our thoughts – to let go of what happened this morning and just be present. Unlike many yoga classes, this style is completely subject to the preference of the instructor. Our focus for this practice was detoxification.
We were guided through heart pumping flows allowing our heart rates to raise and our bodies to elongate twisting out our holiday fluff. We traveled through several standing and balancing poses include basics such as Warriors 1,2 and reverse, Dancers and Eagle.
Once we moved to the floor, we continued compressions to ring out our bodies. Throughout the entire practice, there were opportunities for adding your own flair. This class is built to fit everyone’s ability and encourages you to add your own variations. After all, it is YOUR practice.
We ended in a traditional savasana and I was ready to take on my day. Whether your an expert or a beginning, this morning session is a good fit for every body.
