Lately, I’ve found myself really enjoying shorter yoga classes. Right now it’s easier to get a couple of shorter yoga practices done, than an hour. Which is ok. After there is no right way, or time to practice yoga. If you are short on time, check out this short vinyasa flow routine.
In conversations with other yoga teachers I’ve often heard that “you can’t do a yoga class in less than an hour!”. However, I say “yes you can!”. Is it the same experience? No. But it’s neither better, nor worse, just different.
You can view the video on YouTube. Maybe add it to a playlist? Above all, remember to to subscribe to my channel. New videos are uploaded every Tuesday and Friday.

Short Vinyasa Flow
For this short vinyasa flow I wanted to get the feeling of movement and breath, but with some static holding of poses. After grounding, and a quick warm up it’s into the “meat” of the class Which features poses like three legged dog.
After that, flow through from down dog into swan (a variation on pigeon). Great for opening the hips, and lengthening the glutes. Plus there is a back bend. Great for all the sitting I’ve been doing lately.
After swan, sweep the legs around into boat pose. This is a fun transition, and once mastered easy to come into without the feet touching the floor. Boat pose challenges the core, balance, and focus!
To get back around to do the other there is a really cool sukhasana to downward facing dog transition. Sit in sukhasana and fold over the legs. Reach the arms forward and rock the hips forward, bringing you to all fours. Then, step back into downward dog.
If you’re like me and a fan of quick but frequent workouts throughout the day, this class is sure to be a regular in your fitness routine. Whether morning, evening, or as a midday energy boost this class works for them all.

This short vinyasa flow class is a short snippet of a longer class featuring pigeon, boat and upward facing plank. In addition to all the poses above and more! If you’d like longer format videos join my Patreon Community. Patrons get access to 2 exclusive videos each month.
