Welcome to the third video of Healthista’s second yoga challenge, with leading London yoga teacher Sarah Malcolm (@sarahmalcs), where you learn a new 30-minute yoga sequence each week for three weeks.

The next level of our yoga challenge – Vinyasa flow

This month-long yoga challenge introduces a new Vinyasa flow routine for beginners each week. In each of the three 30-minute videos, you will build your endurance and develop the skills to become a true yogi.

Vinyasa flow is a sequence of yoga poses that are linked through continuous motions. As you flow through each posture, the breath is synchronized with the body movements.

Yoga is a meditation that anyone can do. You don’t need a specific body type to master the practice, you just need the right skills – and you don’t need to be bendy to do it, that’s a myth we’d like to dispel. Just do the moves and you’ll feel the magic.

This video in our series focuses on improving your sleep and stretching your hips.

This 30 minute vinyasa flow routine will help you sleep by calming the body before bed.

‘This routine is perfect if you need a little wind-down if you’re feeling stressed or anxious about something,’ Sarah says.

‘Or if you want a little movement before bed to calm the body and calm the breath.’

The routine also includes a sequence of hip stretches that will help relieve stress built up during the day.
