The following is a list of the main asanas in (more or less) the order I do them in every day. Some days require more repetitions or lengthier pauses in the stretch, other days I’ll find myself on my mat 2-3 times or more! It all just depends on how wound up I am, and the amount of time I can spend on my practice. I hope the following will encourage you to begin your own daily (or multiple times daily ;)) yoga practice.
I typically begin with:
Then I sit down on my mat and do:
Usually I’ll do a forward bend and touch my toes after this. Then continue with:
Then I will sit in Lotus Pose, twist to the left. Switch my legs and then twist to the right. Followed by head rolls, 3 to the right and 3 to the left. When doing head rolls, inhale on the upward movement and exhale on the way back down.
Next I sit in Hero Pose, again twisting to the left and to the right.
Child’s Pose and Extended Child’s Pose (Extending your arms out in front of you)
Then I’ll walk my arms up and stand into Chair Pose:
I will stand all the way up, then go into Warrior II Pose:
After this I will stand up straight, bow my head with my hands together and say “Namaste'” while giving thanks to the yoga gods who just made my day so much more calm and pleasant. 😉
This is a rough list of the asanas I try to incorporate into my daily practice. As I grow more with yoga I will add other asanas as I accomplish them.
