Now that you have been practicing yoga for a while, you have become familiar with most of the poses that Vinyasa has to offer. But maybe it isn’t as challenging for you as it once was. This is a great time to take the old poses and revamp them so that they can be more fun and more challenging to you. Here are some of our favorite, revamped Vinyasa yoga poses.
Plant your feet on the ground and put your hands at your hips. Lift your hips so that you are off of the ground with your torso parallel to the floor. You should look like a table top. You should then lower your hips so that they go through your arms. It is important that you do not touch the ground at all.
Starting on your hands and knees, lift your right leg behind you until it is even with your hip. Then lift your left arm so that it is even with your shoulder. You should be balancing on one knee and one arm. Move both your lifted limbs 90 degrees out from your body and hold for 3-5 breaths.
In a wide squatting position, point your toes out and clasp your hands together in a prayer position. Go up on your toes as high as you can. Without lowering your heels, perform this 10 to 15 times.
There are so many new poses to explore once you have mastered the basic ones. Try these out today and check out more in the weeks to come!
