Recently I've been enjoying bringing the Twisting Balancing Sequence back into my own early morning home yoga practice. I'm also teaching this sequence in my yoga classes this week, so I thought I'd share my handout with you.
You can use the sequence on it's own; or use it to prepare for a stronger sequence such as Salute to the Sun. Students who find Salute to the Sun too challenging could use this sequence instead if they prefer.
In the handout below you'll see that I combine the "Twisting Sequence" with the "Lunge and balance Sequence" to make one longer Twisting balancing Sequence. I usually do about 3 rounds of the sequence, but you could do less or more as suits you.
Today in my home practice I followed the Twisting Balancing Sequence with Utkatasana (standing squat), and then a few rounds of Salute to the Sun.
Here's a Yoga Journal video with teaching points for Chair Pose:
And here's my favourite version of Salute to the Sun.
Enjoy your practice!
