From standing, step your feet apart about the width of your yoga mat. Bend the arms and reach the elbows away from your side body. Allow the body to be loose as you twist the torso to the right and then the left. Slightly bend the legs as you twist and coordinate your breath with the movement. Twist for several breaths.

Kapha Focus:

Moving swiftly with a strong forceful breath.


Energizing, releases heat and tension, warms up the spine and gets things moving.
