Mars: Stoke the Power

25 min - Practice


Infuse the shapes with the energy that feels like medicine today. Ali leads a strong practice to stoke the Pitta fire of the Red Planet. After we charge the Mars energy with mudra and chant, we warm and prepare the core and back body, move through a Lunge sequence into Crow Pose challenging strength and balance, tap into the sense of sight to find steadiness, and explore Headstand from Crow. You will feel strong, light, and focused.

Please see the attached pdf for a breakdown of the planetary aspects.

What You'll Need: Mat, Block


I felt this really did "stoke the fire without burning us out!" I think that is super important with āsana practice in general and especially with a sequence focused on the core. Really sweet. Thank you, Ali.

Hi Ali,
This was short and sweet - I do feel stoked-though the crow to headstand eluded me this time! I love (grrrr) all the chair poses in this series  Thank you - it has always amazed me how challenging this pose really is! I already said the mantras and mudras just seem perfect for the day! 
Have a wonderful day
