Yoga Sequences

The 10-Minute Sequence For Finding Fulfillment

Begin with 10 minutes of foundational poses to remember why you are perfect exactly as you are.

Prep work
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

High Lunge Modification Coby Kozlowski

Anjaneyasana, 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.

Half Monkey God Pose, or Half Splits

Half Split Coby Kozlowski

Ardha Hanumanasana

45 seconds, 6–7 breaths

Lower your hands onto the floor or blocks on either side of your left leg. Exhale to shift your hips back, stacking them over your right knee, and start to straighten your left leg as you flex your left foot. Inhale to lengthen out of your waist, making sure not to round your back. Reach through the crown of your head. Draw the left hip back to meet the right, energizing the left leg.

Lizard Pose, variation

Low Lunge Coby Kozlowski

Utthan Pristhasana, variation

45 seconds, 6–7 breaths

Inhale to shift your left knee back over your left ankle. The top of the right foot can rest on the earth. Exhale to bring your hands to the inside of your left foot. Inhale to hug your legs toward the midline and reach up through the crown of your head. On an exhalation, let your heart soften toward the earth without rounding the spine.

Revolved Low Lunge

REVOLVED LOW Lunge COBY KOZLOWSKI

Parivrtta Anjaneyasana

45 seconds,6–7 breaths

Curl your right toes under. Maintain a long spine, and inhale to reach your arms up. Exhale to bring your hands in front of your heart in Anjali Mudra. On an inhalation, reach out of your waist, then exhale to rotate left, bringing your right elbow to your outer left thigh. Inhale to lengthen your back body; draw the tailbone down. Exhale to rotate deeper, keeping the hands at heart center and the shoulders squared to the left.

Intense Inside Stretch, or Pyramid Pose

Pyramid on Block Coby Kozlowski

Parsvottanasana

45 seconds,6–7 breaths

Exhale to unwind and bring your hands to either side of your left foot, either on the earth or blocks. Lift your right knee off the ground as you straighten your left leg, shortening your stance by several inches. Draw your left hip back and your right hip forward. Stack your hands under your shoulders and move your shoulder blades onto your back, reaching through the crown of your head. To come out, bring your feet together and slowly roll up.
