45 minute vinyasa yoga to find your flow (and reduce PMS)

Life has been feeling pretty off-kilter the last few weeks with the ever changing weather here in Washington, DC. So in honor of the very vata-pitta weather we’ve been having, this practice is designed to help ground you while still maintaining fluidity and lightness. This combination means that it’s also perfect for PMS or the start of your period: the more you soften the low belly muscles and uterus, the less cramps and the more ease you’ll have in your period. This is a fun, challenging practice. Enjoy!
