The Sensational 8 ∞ Day 4 (Happyogis)

Healthy  Actions  Peacefully  Promoting  Youthfulness

As with any of The Sensational 8 programs, take your time, and listen to what your body needs. Today has no prescribed rep range for this day of Happyogis; make it your own.

For each of the allocated dance / free movement sections, dance for as little or as long as you want (remember, it’s your practice.) If you prefer your favourite dance music, or even flowing in harmony with ocean sounds, the choice is yours. Depending on what you choose to listen to, the intensity will differ.

For bodyweight squats, ensure you’re getting a full range of motion, quality > quantity. When you see an (*) next to a movement, push yourself further than you normally would. We’re going all out here, so try your best, okay?

For Garland + Upward Salute, we’re simply transitioning between the two poses, exhaling into Garland, inhaling into Upward Salute.

When it’s time for shoulder taps, make sure your back is flat and your hips align with your spine. No sagging or raising them; keep them neutral! Try your best not to rock or sway back & forth; keep those hips in the middle. If you find that too challenging, then step a little further apart. Remember to keep the pressure distributed to each finger to save your wrists!

Let’s walk the dog a bit before getting into our UP DOG + DOWN DOG flow. We’re exhaling into Downward Dog and inhaling into Upward Dog. Try your best to keep your knees off your mat, staying on your feet.
When doing alternative side planks, we’re making sure our wrists, elbows, and shoulders are all stacked on top of each other.
When doing pike press, it’s essential to keep your elbows tucked in and pointing back toward the wall behind you.

From TABLE TOP, inhale + reach back for your right foot with your right hand. We’re exhaling into TABLE TOP and inhaling into an alternating TIGER FLOW. After about 8 of these, do a CAT/COW FLOW, and reset your spine.

From TABLE TOP pose, try looking over your shoulder to behind you (between your big toes.)

Enter Savasana for at least five minutes at the end of this practice. Command your body to relax and focus on what you want to create. Take this time to do creative visualization and imagine your ideal scenario.
