45-Minute Mandala (My Latest Fave, Free, Online Yoga Vid)

If you click right here, you’ll find a 45 minute flow sequence with Elise Lorimer, courtesy of Yoga Journal.  I’ve been really enjoying this sequence, because of the lively but unhurried flow, the circular “mandala” the movements describe around the mat, and the strength workout provided.  Most of the movements stay low to the ground, and that’s not for everyone – a friend of mine described it with frustration as “that video that had me lunging around the mat like a monkey” – but I found it both challenging and fun.
