1. Sukhasana (Easy Seat)
Sit in a comfortable cross-legged position with your spine straight. Relax your shoulders and allow your hands to rest in your lap with your palms up. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths, letting go of any stress or tension you may be holding on to.
Come to all fours, with your hands directly below your shoulders and your knees directly below your hips. Inhale as you arch your back, and exhale as you round your spine. Continue moving back and forth between Cat and Cow for a few breaths.
3. Child’s Pose
From Cat-Cow, move into Child’s Pose by sitting back on your heels and folding forward until your forehead rests on the floor. Allow your arms to rest alongside your body with your palms facing up. Stay here for a few breaths, letting your body relax and release any tension.
4. Downward Dog
From Child’s Pose, press into your hands and feet to lift your hips up and back into Downward Dog. Spread your fingers and toes wide and press your heels toward the floor. Hold for a few breaths, feeling the stretch in your hamstrings and calves.
5. Triangle Pose
From Downward Dog, step your right foot forward into Triangle Pose. Reach your right hand toward the sky, and bend your left knee until your thigh is parallel to the ground. Hold for a few breaths, then switch sides.
6. Seated Forward Bend
From Triangle Pose, sit back into your hips and fold forward, extending your arms out in front of you. Allow your head to hang down, and breathe deeply into the stretch in your hamstrings and back.
