Yoga Poses in this Sequence

Easy Pose

Easy Pose

Easy Pose, or Sukhasana, is a pose often taught to children as a way for them to sit quietly on the floor. It is also known as “Simple Cross-Legged Pose.” In places without chairs, this would be how adults sat all the time as well. In our modern world, it’s good to practice Easy Pose several times a day to undo the damage brought by sitting at desks all day.

Triangle Pose

Triangle Pose

Extended Triangle Pose (“Utthita” meaning extended, “tri” meaning three, “kon” meaning angle and “asana” meaning pose), often shortened to Triangle, is a combination of a side bend and twist, that brings the focus on hamstrings, chest and shoulders. It is often practiced as part of a Warrior sequence..

Revolved Head to Knee Pose

Revolved Head to Knee Pose

Revolved Head to Knee Pose is an intense seated twist pose that offers even more benefits than a typical standing pose. It was designed to help relieve back pain and is usually performed in the second half of a yoga session after your body has had time to warm up. Regularly practicing this pose will keep your hamstrings and spine stretched, and your mind calm.

Corpse Pose

Corpse Pose

Corpse Pose, or Savasana, is one of the simplest poses in the entire yoga repertoire. You simply lie on your back. But within that is a wealth of power. Interestingly, while many yoga teachers love to use Western names for most poses as they are easier to remember, many also use the Sanskrit name Savasana for this particular pose because they find the name “Corpse Pose” to be off-putting for Western audiences. The pose’s alternate name, Mrtasana, means “Death Pose” which is not much better. So Savasana it is.
