Warming the Body

This pose series is most most beneficial after a workout, when the body is still warm and supple. It is recommended that you complete 5-10 rounds of sun salutations to warm the body.

Crescent Lunge Series

Bring your body into a deep crescent lunge pose. Bend your front knee to 90 degrees, aligning your knee directly over the heel of your front foot. Bring your back knee to the mat, (using a blanket to support the knee if needed) and untuck your back toes. Hold this pose for 5 deep breaths. Reach the arms forward for 5 breaths, then lift the arms up above the head for 5 deep breaths. Next roll the shoulders down the back and open the chest for 5 deep breaths. To challenge yourself add a sun salutation (upward dog into downward dog) between each side. Do a total of 2-4 full rounds of this pose on each side holding each pose for 5 deep breaths.
