Awake & Evolve: Cycle 2 – Standing Twist Pose Focus

The second cycle of Awake & Evolve workouts focuses on using the breath, building upper body stamina, and fostering a habit of regular meditation.

Standing Twist Pose Focus

From standing mountain pose, step the legs 3-4 feet apart. With a flat back gently fold forward and bring the palms to the floor under the shoulders. Bring your forehead down towards the floor and release through the spine. Extend your right hand down towards the floor and your left arm up towards the ceiling. Stay in this pose for 5-10 deep breaths. Repeat this pose sequence 2-3 rounds on both sides, resting as needed.

Benefits of Standing Twist Pose:

  • Strengthens and stretches the hamstrings, knees, and ankles.
  • Stimulates and improves digestion and aids elimination.
