#WellnessWednesday: Balance Poses

We’ve teamed up with Yoga+Sculpt to bring you this week’s #WellnessWednesday Balance video, a flow to give your morning some balance! With this flow, you’ll be able to strengthen your core to achieve a better centre of balance. All it takes is 5 – 10 minutes.

The Flow

Start in standing pose (Tadasana) and centre yourself.
Bring your right leg across your body. Once balanced, twist it around your left leg twist your arms into Eagle Pose (Garudasana).
Release pose and come back to standing.
Bend your right knee and bring it toward your body.
Hook your fingers around your right big toe and straighten your right leg as far as you can into a Standing Hand to Big Toe Lock (Utthita Hasta Padangusthasana). Be sure to keep your base leg and back straight.
Extend the right leg out to the side.
Come back to standing position.
Bend your right knee and hold your foot with your right hand. Raise your left hand above your head, and slowly lean your body forward into Dancer Pose (Natarajasana).
Return to standing position. Place your right leg above your knee as you enter Tree Pose (Vriksasana), with hands in the centre of your chest. Raise them above your head to stretch.
As you bring your bands down, hold your right leg in a tucked position, before moving it behind you into Warrior 3 Pose (Virabhadrasana III).
Release the pose and return to standing. Fold into a forward bend, hooking your fingers around your toes for extra stretch.
Bend your knees and prepare for Crow Pose (Bakasana). Gently press the knees into the backs of the triceps and begin to shift your weight into the fingertips, picking one foot at a time off the floor. Bend the elbows if necessary for balance. Use the core to draw the navel in toward the spine to stabilize and find that “lift” in the center of the body that eventually allows you to straighten the elbows and hold.
As you step down from Crow Pose, step on your hands (if you can) and straighten your legs for another forward bend.
Reverse Swan Dive back to standing and bring your hands to the centre of your chest.

Repeat entire flow on the other side of your body.
