Sunday Sparkling Yogini Yoga Sequence
Begin with 5-10 Sun Salutations to get the body warm.
(Practice the following sequence holding each pose 3-5 breaths.)
*Begin in downward facing dog*
*Step forward with your left leg leading and come into revolving side angle (since this is the 1st twist go easy this time, you’ll be coming back to it again.)*
*Walk your hands and body around to face the right long side of your mat and come into wide leg forward bend*
*Walk your hands and body back into revolving side angle for a 2nd time*
*Plant your back foot flat and lift up into warrior 2 (adjust the feet so they are perpendicular)*
*Extended side angle*
(This next transition is a challenge, just do the best you can with it, and feel free to come up to standing and then pull the right knee up and in.)
*Pull your right leg in toward your chest, grab your big toe with you right hand, and slowly come up to standing with right knee up toward the chest*
*Standing big toe pose*
Vinyasa to downward facing dog, and start the sequence over with the right leg stepping forward this time.
(If you want to mix it up and you have a headstand practice, you can add a tri-pod headstand the 2nd time through after standing wide leg forward bend.)
