In this practice, we begin standing and then move through some half-sun salutations. Afterward, we move through some lunges and half-splits to open the hips and backs of the legs. For standing poses, we have Warrior 1 and Warrior 2. About 35 minutes in, we switch gears and move to the floor for some gentle restorative work.
If you’re not a fan of child’s pose, you can enjoy a seated forward fold, or legs of the wall/chair. Take a few moments to find something that feels restful and supported. I recommend having blocks, a bolster, and a kneepad (if you need one) for this practice. If you don’t have a bolster, you can substitute a few firm pillows or couch cushions. Early in the video I show how you could use a comforter for a DIY bolster.
