This practice is all about feeling the burn, and moving toward it. You're going to fire up your lower body, fatiguing each side with Side Angle Pose and its variations, followed by twists.

Thanks for these very helpful and inspiring videos, K.B. and model! If it's permitted, may I ask who the the bra top the model's wearing is by? (Could not make out the logo and I have quite a tough time finding yoga tops that fit well.)
Thanks Kathryn for the great video about inversions. Yesterday, I was finally able to do the headstand and the tripod headstand following carefully the video. I feel more confident about inversions now. Next step the handstand!!
