Ready for a New Beginning? This 27-Minute Yoga Flow Will Help You Create the Space You Need

Saanya Ali

Ready for the understatement of the century? Life moves fast. That makes it all too easy to get stuck in a rut of the same old, same old because, as they say: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." But what if you're ready for a change? The first step is creating space to let newness in. Whether you're hoping to switch up your career, your dating life, your daily habits, or even your lease on life, BK Yoga Club co-founder Paris Alexandra has built a 27-minute yoga flow to help get you there. On the latest episode of Good Moves, learn how to push yourself out of your comfort zone and open your body up to new beginnings, while you work up a sweat.

To start, Alexandra asks: "What are you creating space for? Maybe you're creating space for love, innovation, joy. Whatever that is, go ahead and do a free-write and really focus on [it]." Then, turn your attention to your breath as you really embody what you have written. The next question is: "What are you inviting into your space?" Follow that up with the same deep breathing that allows you to bring your intention into every piece of your body, preparing it to move. This practice is a great follow-up to part one of the series which was centered around what you need to release and let go of through strength, being present, and slow intentional movement.

This flow is designed to be languid in the movements and transitions, but that does not mean that it's "easy". Taking time with each position will allow you to deepen into the stretches and focus on form, stability, and strength in your balance. It also helps ground you into the intentions that you set at the beginning of the practice. Throughout the flow, Alexandra periodically reminds you to check in with yourself, your body, and your mind to stay vigilant about the goals that you wrote for yourself. In the 27 minutes, you'll be moving through heart-opening exercises, warrior poses, cactus and chair poses, lengthening exercises, and more. The slower pace of the practice really allows you to see if you can lean or push into each movement a little bit more than you normally would during a quicker flow.

To move your body and mind out of a rut and open yourself up to new beginnings, roll out your mat and press play on the video above.
