“Begin standing in Mountain Pose with your feet separated hip-distance apart and parallel to one another. Inhale to reach your arms up overhead, and as you exhale, begin to extend your right leg straight back behind you as you shift your weight into your left foot and leg.”

 


Triangle

“Begin standing at the top of your mat in Mountain Pose. Step your left foot back about three to four feet, placing it parallel to the back edge of your mat. Angle your left foot in slightly and line up the heel of your right foot with the heel of your left foot. With an inhale, extend your arms to shoulder-height alongside your body, parallel to the floor. Extend your right hand forward and hinge at your right hip to bring your right hand down, keeping your front body and pelvis facing toward the left edge of your mat. Place your right hand lightly on your right shin, or the inside of your foot if it is available to you. Reach your left arm straight up toward the ceiling, and broadening across your chest. Lengthen evenly through both sides of your torso.”

 


Twisted Triangle

“Stand with your feet about three feet apart, your right foot pointed forward, your left foot turned parallel to the back edge of the mat. Square your hips to the front of your mat, towards your right leg. Draw your right hip back and left hip forward. Bring the left hand to the inside of the right foot as you twist to the right. Your right hand reaches towards the sky and your gaze is to the right fingertips. Draw the shoulder blades down your back and the shoulders away from the ears.”

 


Warrior Two

“Begin standing at the top of your mat in Mountain Pose. On an exhale, step your left foot to the back of the mat about three to four feet. Place your left foot parallel to the short edge of your mat and line up the heel of your right foot with the heel of your left foot. Press down firmly through the outer edge of your back foot to avoid collapsing into the arch. On an inhale, extend your arms out alongside your body, raising them parallel to the floor with your palms facing down. Bend deeply into your right knee, stacking it directly over your right ankle. Keep your core engaged by slightly scooping your tailbone under and opening your pelvis to face the left side of your mat.”

 


Side Plank
