Yoga Sequences

Yoga Sequence – Eagle Focus

Eagle Sequence

I love flowing warm up sequences, this complete class has one of my favorite ways to feel ready to flow in A series and the rest of the class. I do what feels good in my body. The idea is to get flowing pretty quickly, within about three minutes from the start, but you can flow with the warm up set as well.

When there is a longer balancing section I like to take a moment before it begins and remind the yogis of how good at balancing they are…here is what I usually say: come to standing savasana, close your eyes and notice how you are shifting your weight forward, back and sideways. This means you are constantly working on your balance to stay upright. This also means you are an expert at it. So for the upcoming balancing section keep this in mind and just shift your perspective to one foot. They journey is fun even if you fall out of the pose!
