Master teacher, Yoga Shanti co-owner, and YJ LIVE! presenter Rodney Yee shares his list of must-practice yoga poses, why they’re so important, and how best to sequence them in your practice.
1. Mountain Pose
“Mountain Pose is all about playing with the central axis, which is an approximate plumb line starting at the front inner corners of the heels up to right in front of the tailbone, threaded through the front of the spine to the soft palate of the mouth and the crown of the head,” Yee says. “One gets to play with subtle alignment and sensitivity to postural changes.”
Sprinkle Tadasana throughout your sequence, returning to it in between the main poses of your practice.
