Warrior Hops: Challenge Your Balance

Strengthen your hips, glutes, and core in this balance-challenge class! Begin with a thorough warm-up for your hips and legs before moving into a step-by-step sequence where you’ll practice hopping from warrior ll to utthita hasta padangusthasana (extended hand to big toe pose) and vrksasana (tree pose). Experiment with vasisthasana (side plank) variations to further test your balance, including a challenging chair version of the pose. Relax at the end with reclined twists and a chair-supported savasana.

Props: 2 blocks, chair, blanket, bolster
