MASTER THE KEY POSES

Don’t get thrown off by the lingo! Check out these bite-sized videos to help you break down the nitty gritty.

DOWNWARD FACING DOG

This pose is the salt of the vinyasa yoga practice and is one of the most beneficial postures used in classes. It’s considered a resting pose during our dynamic sequence. This will be of benefit during classes, as you can also use the pose for long recovery holds.

CHATURANGA

One of the core transitions within the Power Living vinyasa sequence and one of the most important to get right to avoid injury. This is a powerful, strengthening pose that coordinates many muscles within the body and requires considerable strength to perform. Try to stay calm, breathe and let go of any struggle.

UPWARD FACING DOG

Incorporated into the Sun Salutations to gently warm and mobilise the spine in prep for deeper postures to come. A gentle backward bend, it stretches the front side of the torso, strengthens into the back and arms, and opens up the chest.
