This heat-building sequence with deep squats and advanced variations will turn up your internal temperature and help burn off anything leftover in your system.

Still recovering from Thanksgiving? In this heat-building sequence, master Baptiste Yoga teacher Leah Cullis, who will lead Yoga Journal's upcoming online course Pillars of Power Yoga (sign uphere to be the first to know when this fitness- and focus-boosting course launches), offers deep squats and advanced variations to turn up your internal temperature and burn off anything leftover in your system.

How to Use this Sequence

Warm Up: Start with 3 rounds each of Sun Salutation A and Sun Salutation B.
Hold: Stay in each pose for 5 breaths the first time through.
Flow: Once you feel confident with the sequence, try moving through it again at a pace of 1 breath per movement. Repeat this flow 3–5 times to really stoke your inner temp and fuel your detox.
Finish: Take Pigeon Pose on each side, a Seated Forward Bend, and Savasana.
