28 Yoga Poses to Get Your Vinyasa Flow On
Raise your hand if you've ever been intimidated by a gorgeous Instagram picture of an impossibly flexible yogi with their arms and legs pretzeled in to some kind of impossible shape. Yea, us too. This is not that kind of yoga challenge. We teamed up with Masumi Goldman and Laura Kasperzak of Two Fit Moms to create a challenge for the every yogi—and the novice yogi. Each week, you'll master six poses, then put them all together for a #FridayFlow. You'll start with the basics, the move through core-strengthening poses, flexibility-enhancing shapes, and strength-building moves.
By the end of the month, you'll be able to put all 24 individual poses together for a pretty killer vinyasa flow that will help you tone all over—and prep you for those Instagram-worthy shapes you know you want to post. (Psst: tag them with #PostYourPose throughout the month!) Want to keep your practice going? Download Laura and Masumi's Gaiam Yoga Rising classes on iTunes, available at a special rate for a limited time. (Ready for the next challenge?
