Everyone moves, but not everyone moves with ease. Through yoga, students of all levels can gain flexibility, improve balance, and increase strength. This sequence was specifically designed to open the hips, hamstrings, and heart and honor the body with classic transitions and clean lines.

Ensure you properly warm up before beginning this sequence (we suggest four Sun Salute A’s and two complete Sun Salute B’s). Once you begin the sequence, it’s important that you take your time as you move through the poses. Complete full breath cycles as you move through the Sun Salutes to properly prepare your body for the peak poses, paying extra attention to the upward and downward-facing dogs. Also, be sure to focus on the correct form and engaging your muscles instead of how deep you can stretch. As you progress, your movements will become more fluid and much more in tune with your body and mind.

The Sequence

Complete the sequence on your right side, then repeat on your left side.
