4 Foundational Yoga Poses to Support Your Practice

Let's break down basic asana poses to focus on the foundation of your practice. Only with a strong base, is how to build a complex practice.

Build your Practice Foundation

Extended Side Angle (Utthita Parsvakonasna)

Extended Side Angle

Strengthens and stretches the legs, knees, and ankles, stimulates the abdominal organs and increases stamina.

Reverse Warrior (Viparita Virabhadrasana)

Reverse Warrior

It’s a fantastic side stretch, opening the intercostal muscles between each rib, and it’s a common pose in vinyasa flow. It improves flexibility in the spine and increases blood flow to reduce fatigue.

High Crescent (Ashta Chandrasana)

High Crescent

A great foundational posture to practice more advanced balance poses. Lift the pelvic floor and draw your belly button in, while you squeeze the inner thighs together. 

Revolved Crescent Lunge (Parivrtta Anjaneyasana)

Revolved Crescent Lunge

A great detoxifying pose because of the twist, it also increases stamina and balance, and strengthens the abdominals. Join us next month for #FridayFocus with 4 key balance improving poses.
