If You Lift Weights, This Yoga Sequence Is a Must

Extended Side Angle

  • From Open Lunge Twist, lower your right palm to the little-toe side of your right foot.
  • Lift the back knee off the floor, and deepen the stretch on the left side of the body by extending your left arm over your ear, creating a straight line between the left toes and left fingertips.
  • Hold here for five breaths.

Half-Bound Squat Prep

  • From Extended Side Angle, step your left foot forward so you’re in a Wide Squat.
  • Lower your right shoulder as far as you can underneath your right shin, reaching your fingers out to the side.
  • Put some weight into your right palm, so you can shift weight back into your heels and balance equally on both feet.
  • Reach your left arm into the air, gazing toward your lifted hand to encourage your spine to twist a little more.
  • Stay like this for five deep breaths.
