Morning practice to move the spine
≤45 min. Most yoga class sequences include poses that move the spine forward, back, to both sides, and twists -- all which provide elongation. This well rounded practice starts supine -- lying down and hugging the thighs in -- a sweet way to begin morning movement. From there we come to standing and work through high and low lunges to wide leg humble warrior variation and prasarita padottanasana, followed by vrksasana, or tree pose to balance. In standing, seated, and supine poses we will be doing gentle twists. Cues are given to emphasize the breath in the actions.
