This is an excerpt from Motivational Yoga by Nancy Gerstein.
Stepping Stone Vinyasa
The stepping stone vinyasa is a reminder that asana isn't the goal of yoga; it's merely a means to get there, a form of transportation to find the stillness of the mind. Ride the motivational wave as you guide the way through the path of movement.
Take 3 to 5 breaths in each pose before transitioning to the next one.
