Yoga Challenge Week 2

Hi friends!

Sunday begins week 2 of the September yoga challenge!  Can you believe it?  You are all such beautiful and amazing yogis!

Remember, before starting each day's posture, be sure that you are nice and warm, preferably breaking a bit of a sweat before diving in.  Something like sun salutations, a jog/run, or 10 minute brisk walk should do.  Don't forget to share with me in Instagram and Twitter with #SeptemberYoga!!

September 6: Revolved head to knee pose (Parivrtta Janu Sirsasana)
         Starting in a wide-legged seated position, gently tuck your right foot into your left inner thigh (use a blanket or pillow for support under your lifted knee if you'd like).  Place the back of your left palm along the inside of your left leg and gently press into your leg so you begin to twist towards your bent knee.  Then, reach your right arm up to the sky, opening your chest and reaching that arm in line with your ear.  Extend through the fingers and take 5 deep breaths before repeating on the other side.

September 7:  Tripod (Sirsasana)

September 8: Tripod headstand (Sirsasana II)

September 9:  Standing forward bend (Uttanasana)

September 10:  Crow pose (Bakasana)

September 11:  Dancer pose (Natarajasana)

September 12:  Warrior I (Virabhdrasana I)
