Warm up your Winter Yoga

Are you bundled up right now in an extra thick sweater and slippers dreaming of sunny, warm summer yoga? When the roads are slick, and the snow is accumulating it can feel like a challenge to stay active. We have all been there— some days it’s a struggle not to burrow under a blanket and hibernate.

To help you embrace the winter season we’ve created our Warming Winter Yoga infographic (below) to share easy ways to warm up your yoga practice during any cold day.

The key to avoiding cold yoga? Keep it simple. Embrace yoga poses that engage your entire body, stretch often throughout the day to keep moving and don’t forget the power of the ujjayi breath. It’s a great way to warm up whenever you are feeling chilled both on and off your yoga mat.
