toward navel, up higher, wrapping the right arm around, holding on to the foot, or
holding on to the left arm. If you have the foot, you
can extend the left arm up. It’s a half lotus, so don’t push it. Tree pose is also beautiful and perfect. Releasing the hand down, keep

to the little toe side of your back foot, step your left leg on top of the right again,
Vasisthasana side plank. This time option to lift
the left leg a little bit or perhaps even grab
the toe, and lift it up. If you’re lifting it up, try
to lift the hips up high. Maybe that foot on the floor can even come flat on the floor. Slowly release that. Make your way into plank. Hold plank or lower Chaturanga. Inhaling up. And then exhale, stretch all
the way back into down dog. Breathe. Remember, pause button
rest, always an option. Bend the knees. Step or hop forward. Lengthen as you inhale, and fold on your exhale. Now we’ll bend the

through the right leg. And lift your left leg up into tree pose. Anywhere above or below the knee. Hands at heart center or
you can lift the arms up. Stay with tree, or grab that left foot. Bring the heel up toward the navel, then point the knee down for half lotus. Taking the hand behind your
back, hold on to your right arm. Or if you can reach the
toe, you can grab that. Reaching up through the
right arm if it’s free. This is called Ardha
Baddha Padmottanasana. Remember, tree pose is wonderful. That one’s called Vriksasana. Now release the foot,
both arms up extending that left leg forward,

your left hand underneath your front thigh. Right arm behind the back and interlock. Keep pulling that left hip back. Remember your twists come
from above the waist, so best you can, keep
your hips nice and level. Slowly release that, and then
roll to the little toe side of your back foot. Step right foot on top of left, reaching your right arm
up for Vasisthasana. This time option to lift
the right leg a little bit, or maybe bend the knee, grab
the toe, extend the leg up. Keep lifting up through the
hips if you’ve got that leg up and try to flatten that bottom foot onto your mats as if you’re
standing right on it. Slowly release, back to plank. And go right to down dog,
or exhale Chaturanga. Inhale to press to up dog, and exhale lift up and
back, downward facing dog. Even out your breath. Good work. You are so strong. Bend the knees. Step or hop and sit. Now you can lean right
on to your back from here or a little boat pose, and slowly slowly, making your way on to your back. Keep your belly lifted
if you’re doing that, lift the pelvic floor. Take your time, and then
lie all the way down. Bend your knees, take
heels under the knees, set up for bridge. Outer edges of your feet parallel. Pull your belly in. Lengthen your tailbone. Inhale, lift hips, low back, mid back. Maybe upper back, and
grab the sides of the mat, or roll the shoulders under to interlace. Press those heels down and keep your neck nice and long as you lift. Spiral the inner thighs
down like you’re holding a block between the legs. Release, take soles of feet together. Let your knees open, one
hand on your heart center, hand on your belly and
think of three things that you are grateful for right now. Now bring the feet back
up, heels under knees for another bridge pose. Or if you take wheel, Urdhva Dhanurasana. Take your hands up by the
ears, elbows point straight up. Pause at the crown of the head, line up wrists and elbows. Make sure your elbows
are not splaying out, and then stretch up. Make sure the feet don’t turn out either. Point your toes in. Sparrow the thighs down and
keep lengthening sitting bones to backs of knees, breathe. Release your bridge, or
if you’re all the way up, chin to chest first. Slowly lower down, and then
hug the knees into the chest. Rock yourself gently side to side. Give your low back a nice massage. Either roll yourself to
the right or press up or roll back and forth,
rolling up and down the spine two or three times. Come all the way up to seated. Extend the legs in front
of you in Dandasana. Pull the toes back but
keep your heels down. Reach your arms up, inhale. Hinge forward from your hip
creases to keep your spine long. Then lengthen, inhale, and extend. Hold on to anything at all. You can also use a strap around your feet. If it seems like you
can’t sit up very tall in Dandasana, then I would
suggest sitting on the edge of a folded blanket or
the edge of a pillow. Breathe here. Relax your shoulders. Relax your jaw. Keep your spine nice and long. Keep drawing in through the belly, and the pelvic floor even here. Inhale head up, and exhale to release. Make your way on to your back. Take your right ankle,
just past the left knee. Figure four, or thread the
needle pose for a hip stretch. Flex that right ankle. And then, keep the legs as they are. Take them over to the left, looking right. You can stay with that or
you can reach your right hand for your left foot, left
hand for the right leg and then stretch them
away from each other. It’s kind of intense, so do what you can. Turn your belly up toward the ceiling. And really any twist lying
down is perfect right now. Release back to center. Left ankle just past right knee. Thread the needle. Draw that left hip forward,
make sure the ankles are flexed. Relax your shoulders, and
your jaw as you breathe. Keep the legs in the same position, drop them over to the left side, and then right hand reaches for left leg, and left hand reaches for right, and then you stretch them
away from each other. Looking over the right shoulder,
or sorry the left shoulder. Oh my goodness, right
and left challenge today. Turn the belly up toward the ceiling. Remember any lying down
twist is just perfect here. Release, make your way back to center. Hug the knees in one last time. Lengthen sitting bones
toward backs of knees. And make your way into
your final resting pose. So arms out from the sides of the body. Draw shoulder blades away from ears. Palms up, relax your
forehead and your jaw. Your quote today is from
an anonymous person. It’s not about being good at something, it’s about being good to yourself. Quiet minds, quiet body, Shavasana, rest. Right where you are, take a deeper breath. As you let it go, begin
to move your fingers, your toes, your hands, your feet. A long stretch out through
the arms and the legs. And bend your knees, roll to your right and thank yourself for showing up today. You did a wonderful job. Slowly make your way up
to a comfortable seats. Bring your hands together. Bring your hands to your forehead, reminding you to have
clear and loving thoughts. Hand to your heart, reminding you to have clear and loving intentions. And hand to your mouth,
reminding you to have clear and loving communications
sending positive energy out to all beings everywhere. Namaste. Now if you thought that this class was a bit difficult, you’re right. A lot of strength involved
