This quick and effective morning vinyasa practice with Ashleigh Sergeant will be the perfect new ritual to implement at the start of your day. When you only have a few minutes to get centered, enlivened and grounded you must be very effective in the poses that you choose. In 15 minutes you will awaken the body and the breath and learn to connect them with your heart energy to set a clear intention for your day. Don't leave home without it.

@JayW Great Question! And there's no right answer here. Traditionally, yogi's did asana as a preparation for mediation. A way to get the body to open and release in order to be able to sit longer in a meditative state. Sometime this is exactly what I need. Other times I feel the need to just sit. So, listen to your body and mind and go with what they are asking for from you. Enjoy!

Thank you from the banks of the Wapahani this cool and cloudy August morning. I am trying to build in my home practice every morning. Is it best to do the asana practice before or after a morning meditation?

Excellent! Perfect for the mornings when I have only a few minutes to practice. Thanks

I wake up every morning with your práctice, it has became my ritual as well, thank you

Thank you, Ashleigh! This is my "go to" when I have just enough time to do a short practice to set up my day. It puts me in the right place so I can build my day from a place of ease, calmness, and being centered. I know that if I didn't do this practice on those "rushed" feeling mornings... my days would be much different. So thank YOU!

Wow! Yet another super practice from Ashleigh! I really needed a short practice for the day and this fit the bill! Thanks, I feel rejuvenated by the asana practice and the instructions given by Ashleigh. Thank you.

I'm grateful that this practice came back to me this morning. Crunched on time but needed that wake-up, grounding feeling that yoga gives to the start of the day. This was perfect. Ashleigh, I love how despite it being a "quick" experience...it felt relaxed and complete! Namaste!

lovely short morning practice to gently wake up all parts and calm and center the mind.

Thank you Ashleigh. I really liked this morning practice. Perfect for days when you don't have the energy for a more intense morning practice.

Thank you very much for this lovely morning practice. I especially appreciated focusing on my breath rather than the 'perfection' of the posture, and making an intention for the day.

chexycat, posted on April 17, 2013

I always need a quick shot in the morning to set me right for my day, thank you!

pixiepadma, posted on April 11, 2013

This is perfect for mornings I just can't get out of bed to do a longer practice- I've done it repeatedly over the past couple of weeks. Thank you :)

Josie (5), Sienna (2), and I did this practice this morning. It was fun seeing the kids trying to do the moves and really fun to bond with them doing something I love.
