Prasarita Padottanasana. Legs spread wide, fold forward and release any tension of the day. Great stretch for hamstrings and low back.
Utthita Trikonasana. The triangle’s base is strength, the sides rise up with aspiration reaching the zenith, the pinnacle of mind and emotion. With strength and balance reach for your goals.
Virabhadrasana I. In Warrior pose you stand strong and courageous, focused and determined to face life’s challenges. Your strong legs support your lengthening spine, your eyes focused on the goal.
Bhujangasana. La cobra levanta la cabeza con fuerza y atención. Fomenta la confianza al inhalar, fortaleciendo los músculos de la espalda al alzarse y estirarse hacia adelante y hacia arriba. Fortalece la espina dorsal, alarga el pecho, expande los pulmones, hombros y abdomen, reduce el cansancio y la fatiga.
