“How to get yourself out the door when you’re tired”
Here’s a short and dynamic sequence to energise you when you’re feeling lethargic.
We start with Supta Virasana over a bolster. Virasana forwards and Adho Mukha Svanasana (Dog Pose) follow up. We then go through two inversions, Adho Mukha Vrksasana preparation and the full pose, the arms supported with a belt. Then we begin on some quick repetitive standing poses, moving in and out of the pose without holding for long: Trikonasana, Parivrtta Trikonasana, Parsvottanasana and Prasarita Paddotanasana.
Then we progress to a pair of sitting poses, Parvatasana in Virasana and Dandasana, to extend the arms and extend the legs. To wind down, we practise Salamba Sirsasana and a supported legs up the wall, with an L-shaped bolster.
