Inversion Challenge, Day 7: Transitions

Yoga teacher and former NFL football player Derrick “DJ” Townsel demonstrates how to use breath to transition between poses.

Over the course of this Inversion Challenge, you’ve worked on a number of poses—from Tripod Stand to Crow Pose and Handstand. Now, DJ Townsel will show you how to put it all together, by showing how to use your breath to transition into and out of difficult inversions and arm balances, so you can incorporate these poses into your daily practice.

This video is part of a seven-day inversion challenge hosted by yoga teacher and former NFL football player Derrick “DJ” Townsel. Find all the videos in this series here.
