Practice 1: This moving sequence starts with simple poses that get the blood circulating and warm up the spine, joints, muscles and ligaments. Once the body is warm, we progress to modified sun
salutations. The sun salutations will slowly elevate the heart rate as we begin to breathe deeply into each posture and move at a “one breath, one movement” rhythm. Then we integrate poses that will build strength and stamina in the body while increasing flexibility. For novice practitioners, we
recommend you repeat Practice 1 until you feel strong and comfortable in the sequence before
progressing to Practice 2.
