In this edition of the Bear Basics, I move us through a sequence incorporating movement emphasizing chair pose (utkatasana) and moving into triangle pose (trikonasana) and other assorted poses. This week, I’ve added an emphasis on crescent lunges. Also, this edition was pretty sweaty. I wanted to add in additional personal training components that I use with my clients including one-legged chair pose (moving toward a one-legged squat).

As I planned yesterday’s class, I wanted to make sure that we got a little bit more sweaty. I wanted to incorporate more abdominal work today and as such, for the next couple days, we’ll be working through leg lifts. As you can feel in yesterday’s practice, I wanted to focus on gazes and maintaining movement in tandem with the breath.
In this class we move through:
- Child pose/Cobra Vinyasa
- Seated Twist;
- Sun A;
- Sun B;
- Warrior 1;
- Warrior 2;
