Wake Up with Yoga Artwork
Season 1 - Episode 5

Twist to Unwind

30 min - Practice


Twist and unwind in this spicier flow leading to Twisted Triangle pose. We flow through Sun Salutes, adding in standing poses to stabilize the legs and hips and find space in the spine and upper body in preparation for our peak pose. We close in a sweet restorative inversion to soothe the nervous system. You will feel calm and supple.

Hoorah I am the first comment! Dolphin pose: more please. That is hard. Thank you for all the upward  dogs. I have hammer toes, but with stronger big toe mounts/toes I can pivot into downward dog now with less pain. Your systematic approach gives me the calmness to improvise a solution. I definitely cleared out the morning stiffness. Namaste 🙏🏻

I loved this practice!  The right amount of spice for the morning.  The twists and downward dogs really helped by tight back and hips after a long work week.  Thank you!

It's more the flow of movement, one into another like Down dog to Forward fold. Maybe my body is not there yet

Sara S Hi Sara, The flow is not terribly important. Skip what you need to skip to make your practice work for you. Did you do the second sequence in my yoga show? That one is not so much a flow practice. Warmest, Birgitte

Suzy L Hi Suzy, So happy to hear that the practice worked for you. Twists can be so helpful with especially a tight upper back...has a way of neutralizing the back, bringing it back to normal after a long week. Thank you for your feedback. Namaste, Birgitte
Beautifully paced practice, with just enough difficulty to keep it interesting. Yoga to me is like poetry in motion, all my feelings, thoughts and senses contained in flowing movement. Namaste.
Glenford N Hi Glenford, "Poetry in Motion" ...I love that description. Thank you for sharing. Happy to hear that the practice worked for you. Namaste, Birgitte
