In the latest episode of Good Moves, Traci Copeland, a yoga instructor and Nike Master Trainer, offers a quick yoga flow for flexibility. “We’re going to loosen, we’re going to lengthen, and we’re going to get rid of all that existing tension,” she says. Some of the poses look a little scary if you’re super inflexible (like the splits, for instance!), but this flow isn’t about going full-out and trying to reach level 10 yogi status right this second. No matter where you’re at in your practice, it will help you feel more comfortable and confident with time.
“Listen to your body,” says Copeland. “Yoga isn’t about forcing your way through anything. You just want to breathe you way into the shape of that pose.”
Even little things like focusing on lifting your leg a little higher will have you well on your way to being more flexible. And who knows—after a while, this yoga flow for flexibility could have you busting out sirsa padasana at the front of your class. A girl can dream, right?
