Short dynamic and energizing sequence


Pixie leads you through a great energizing sequence. Pose repetitions get the blood flowing and extend range of movement. A great sequence for when you're feeling a bit flat.

Short dynamic and energizing sequence

What’s in this class?

“How to get yourself out the door when you’re tired”

Pixie takes you through a short but 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. Pixie then leads you 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.

A note about Parivrtta Trikonasana in this sequence

11 minutes in to this video Pixie gives instructions about Parivrtta Trikonasana. Please note that when turning to the right, you start with your right foot forward and by raising your left arm to swing towards the floor. The same applies in reverse when facing to the left: your left foot is forward and your right arm raises first and swings towards the floor.
