Lessons

Once you are ready to practice a sequence in your home, follow the sequence as it appears in lessons below. In each pose, be aware of your breath… your physical actions… and your alignment.

Enjoy hip openers to lead you to lotus (pdf).

Learn to maintain a steady foundation—whether it is your feet, hands, or head (pdf).

Practice aligned physical actions to strengthen your poses applying kidney and pelvic loops (pdf).

Rejuvenate your practice and go deeper in thigh stretches (pdf).

Lengthen your side ribs to prepare for deeper twists (pdf).

After you have completed a sequence of poses, be sure to lie down on your mat and take at least 5 minutes to restore the body and mind in savasana.
