Model Behavior: Yoga with Chrissy Carter

 

 

 

My home practice is very simple. I almost always start on my back; it gives me a chance to check in with myself. Some days I never get off the floor.

Other days I'm inspired to get up and move. What’s most important is that I let go of my expectations; I surrender to how I feel and then I just go with the flow.

A home practice can foster a deeper relationship with our intuition.

Your practice can be whatever you want or need it to be, because the only person you have to answer to is you.

 

 

 

 

When I practice in the morning, I focus more on active, energizing postures like standing poses, backbends, and active inversions.

My evening practice is my chance to unwind my body and mind and release the tension from the day.
