Episode 9 - Peak Pose: Compass Pose

July 29, 2016    BY Luis R. Davila

Follow along with Luis as he leads this sweaty 40-minute vinyasa practice.

After warming up with sun salutes, work on your balance while developing strength in standing splits. Prepare for the peak pose by warming the core and lifting the heart in warrior II, opening and strengthening the hips and quads in standing splits; then practice external rotation in the shoulders and maintaining a supported, stacked spine in seated twists in preparation for the peak pose (compass pose!). Wind down with gentle backbends, inversions, and an extended savasana.

No props needed.
