Hi, I'm Sara Holliday from fitbysara.com, and I'm going to show you an energy flow from side-bending yoga poses. And in this energy flow from side-bending yoga poses, I highly recommend that you incorporate a yoga block. That way, you make sure you have proper alignment and avoid injury. Now, this posture that I will show you, these series of postures is really great for building heat in your body so that you can get deeper into your postures and firm up your thigh muscles. So, let's begin; stepping out sideways on your mat, bring your block to the inside of your foot and extend the arm over your shoulder. Inhaling with a bent knee, exhale straight. Now, you can see when I come up here that my hip is pointing straight up; if it's coming forward, then you need to come up higher maybe even on the thigh. So, inhale, bend knee; exhale straighten and repeat three to five times and then hold, pulling up the thigh muscles, lengthening through the body. Inhale, bend the knee, drop the arm, come all the way up to reverse in a triangle, drawing the shoulders down, pulling up the thigh muscles, reaching up over the top. Inhale, exhale, bring your forearm to your thigh and extend your arm up overhead, reaching over the top. Inhale, exhale, wrap the arm behind your back and continue looking over the shoulder. Inhale back through the center and exhale, bend the opposite knee. Repeating on this side the same sequence, inhale bend, exhale, straighten, keeping that hip open. Inhale back, exhale, straighten. Repeating three to five times and then hold, lengthening, reaching the arm up overhead. Inhale, bend the knee, drop the arm and come all the way up, reversing in a triangle, tucking the hip under, pulling up the thigh muscles, reaching above. Inhale, exhale, bring the forearm to the thigh and extend the arm overhead. Inhale, exhale, wrap the arm behind your back looking over the shoulder. And you can repeat this sequence several times and you'll really start to feel the heat in your body and the muscles in your thighs working. I'm Sara Holliday from fitbysara.com, and I just showed you an energy flow from side-bending yoga poses.
