MOVE IT MONDAY: SARAH LEVEY FLOWS IN AEANCE

chloeHPFor this Move it Monday, we’re uniting two brands that both prioritize intersection– Sarah Levey, co-founder of y7 studio and AEANCE. Y7 makes yoga approachable by celebrating individuality with catchy hip hop music and candlelight. AEANCE has a similar commitment to the individual–intersecting fashionable cuts with serious functionality. Because of their similar missions, we introduced them to see what would happen! Sarah tested their latest collection out in a custom flow for our readers. The verdict? AEANCE was definitely dynamic enough for Sarah’s downward dog.

Flow:

On an inhale, lift the right leg up toward the ceiling. As you exhale, bring the knee into the nose and step the right foot in between your hands arriving in a low lunge.
