Build your Practice Foundation
Extended Side Angle (Utthita Parsvakonasna)
Strengthens and stretches the legs, knees, and ankles, stimulates the abdominal organs and increases stamina.
Reverse Warrior (Viparita Virabhadrasana)
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)
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)
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.
