A Yoga instructor is trained to craft a sequence to avoid injuries and provides a safe, effective and beneficial yoga practise.

Breathe as you practise and use each inhale to lengthen and each exhale to wring yourself out like a sponge, getting rid of anything you no longer want or need.
1- Wide-legged Forward Fold with Twist: From a wide-legged forward fold, heel-toe feet wide, about three to four feet apart. Take left hand to right ankle or shin, reach right hand toward the ceiling, and lean back. Stay here or, if it would feel even better, bend your right elbow, take hold of the top of your left thigh, and lean back. Breathe for 5 deep breaths, then repeat on the other side.
2- Side-to-Side Chair Twists: From standing, sink hips and reach arms high to chair pose. Look in front of your knees and make sure you can see toes. If you can’t, sit back until you can. Take hands together at the center of the chest, take a big inhale to lengthen through the spine, and use exhale to twist to the right, taking the left elbow outside of the right thigh. Inhale back to center and use exhale to twist to the left. Repeat this sequence 5 times on each side.
3- High Lunge Twist Repetitions: From high lunge with left foot forward, inhale to straighten legs and lift arms high. On exhale, come back down to high lunge and twist, reaching right arm forward and left arm back. Inhale back to center. Do 10 to 20 reps, then repeat on the opposite side.
4- Bow: Lie facedown, bend knees, and take hold of ankles. Press feet into hands, keeping knees hip-width apart, and lift chest off the ground. Stay here for 5 deep breaths.
5-Seated Twist: Sit with legs long in front of you. Bend right knee and place right foot outside of left knee. (You can keep your left leg long or fold it in like a half-cross-legged seat.) Wrap left arm around right leg and place right hand on the ground behind the sacrum. Use each inhale to lengthen spine and each exhale to wring yourself out of anything you no longer want or need. Do this for 5 deep breaths, then repeat on the other side.
6- Supine Twist: Lie on the ground, hug right knee into chest, “T” arms out to either side, and allow the right knee to fall to the left. You can stay with a neutral neck or, if it feels good, look to the right. You can also take the left hand to right thigh to allow its weight to ground the right leg. Stay here for at least 5 deep breaths, then repeat on the other side.
7- Plow with Twist: Lie on back with knees bent, feet on the floor and arms on either side. Soften knees and press arms into the ground to reach feet up toward the ceiling and then back behind you any amount that feels good on your neck. When feet are on the ground behind you, take hands in a clasp on the mat. Walk feet to the left side of head and, if it feels good, bend your right knee to the ground outside the left ear. If that feels good, you can bend your left knee as well. Breathe here for 5 deep breaths, then walk feet to the right side of head and repeat.
8- Shoulder Stand: From the plow, take hands to lower back for support and try to keep elbows about shoulder-width apart. Soften through knees and, one at a time, reach feet toward the ceiling, lengthening legs long when it feels good. Breathe here for 5 deep breaths. To come out, soften knees back toward forehead, come back to plow, and, using arms as breaks, slowly lower back onto the mat one vertebrae at a time.
