Start seated in Sukhasana (Easy Pose), placing both palms over your heart, connecting with awareness and compassion. Find a rhythmic breath. After a few minutes of centering, remain seated and move through a sidebend and twist on each side, then a seated Cat-Cow. Repeat five times.
Do all five poses on the left side, and then on the right.
Low Lunge, variation
1 minute, 8–10 breaths
Move into Table Top, with your toes curled under. Take four breaths here. Then inhale to step your left foot between your hands, with your left knee over your left ankle. On an inhalation, bring your hands to your left knee. Hug your legs toward each other like a pair of scissors closing. Lengthen your tailbone down as your bellybutton draws in. Reach through the crown of your head.
