Need to balance your kapha dosha? Try this 40-minute flow to invite warmth and strength into your body. Mixing invigorating twists with slower restorative postures, this practice helps to counteract the heaviness of kapha to help you find lightness and energy in your body and mind. It’s recommended to have a bolster and a blanket for this practice.
