This week we challenge you to “get your flow on” and take 10 minutes each day to try some new movement flows and balances. You are probably familiar with downward dog and mountainpose. Try these out but add a few more into the mix – how about some animal poses? Cobra, lizard, butterfly, lotus and camel. Hold each pose for 20-40 seconds before moving onto the next one. Don’t forget to breathe!
