Sadness happens to all of us at some point . Whether we are simply a little blue, or dealing with life's more challenging circumstances sometimes daily life becomes hampered by the emotions we hold in our bodies.

Regular practice of this flow will stabilize your mood and lift your spirits as well as provide a no-impact dose of fitness! A great PMS and STRESS buster as well, and at only 37 minutes, lack of time isn't an issue! Andrea guides you through this sequence of twists, back bends, standing postures and pranayama to increase your endorphins, get your blood flowing and focus your mind on the day ahead of you. Final relaxation is combined with a Buddhist meditation to add perseverance and positive thinking to your outlook for the days when it is hard to find it for yourself. Duration: 41 min

Note: You will need a small, smooth stone that fits into the palm of your hand for final relaxation - be sure to choose your stone before you settle down for your practice.

Level: Beginner-Intermediate to Advanced

Benefits: soothes anxiety, uplifting, stabilizes mood, decreases PMS symptoms, increases perspective and clarity, increases self-esteem, improves posture, opens shoulders, hip flexors and the heart chakra
