Visvamitrasana: Entrance to Power

Prepare for and practice visvamitrasana (a powerful arm balance, named after a king who turned into a sage) in this alignment-focused vinyasa sequence. You’ll begin with a seated hip-opening warm-up and sun salutations. After that, you’ll do knee-to-nose versions of down dog, side plank variations, lizard variations, and more before moving on to the peak pose and other arm balances. Unwind at the end with wrist and shoulder openers and a block-supported bridge sequence, then close in a blanket-supported savasana.

Props: 2 blocks, blanket
