Standing Poses

Our mission is to empower you to reach your nutrition and fitness goals.

Standing poses: are often done first in a yoga class to "build heat" and get you warmed up. In vinyasa/flow style yoga, standing poses are strung together to form long sequences. In Hatha classes, the standing poses may be done individually with rest between each pose.

Mountain Pose

The name Downward Facing Dog goes hand in hand with yoga, but just because you've heard of this pose doesn't mean it's easy to do.

Warrior I

The important thing to remember in Warrior I is that the hips face forward. Think of your hip points as headlights—they should be roughly parallel with the front of your mat.

Warrior II

Unlike Warrior I, in Warrior II the hips face the side of the mat. When moving from Warrior I to Warrior II, the hips and shoulders both open to the side..

Extended Side Angle

One modification of Extended Side Angle Pose is to bring your forearm to your thigh instead of placing your hand on the floor. It should rest lightly on your thigh, not bear a lot of weight.

Triangle Pose

The Triangle can be modified in a manner similar to Extended Side Angle, using a yoga block for your bottom hand if you aren't comfortable reaching your arm all the way to the floor.
