Episode Highlights

Warm ups are an essential part of your yoga sequence – so how do you know if you are choosing the right poses? By listener request, I share my thoughts on the topic in this episode including:

  • The two main purposes for warming up
  • The kind of movement that is best for fulfilling these intentions
  • How to choose warm up poses based on the more challenging poses you plan to teach later in the sequence.
  • Why I think that most basic yoga poses are actually pretty complex – and how to prepare our students to get the most out of them.
  • A simple guideline you can use for any class
  • How to modify warm ups based on the population you teach
