Lengthen and Strengthen

Energize mind and body in this part mat, part wall practice. You'll begin with kapalabhati (skull shining breath) and a warm-up that includes joint mobilization exercises, sun salutes, and supine core work. After that comes a horse stance flow and a lengthening and strengthening wall sequence that includes dolphin L-shape handstands, shoulder- and chest-opening practices, lunge variations, camel, and more.   

You’ll then wind down with seated and reclined stretches, baddhakonasana at the wall, and more, before resting in an optional savasana.

Props: 2 blocks, blanket, wall
