Sequence// Shoulder Openers

Yes, it's been awhile. My apologies. But here we go. A very, very good shoulder opener from a class I took on Monday night. You should make a 180 turn by the end of this sequence

  1. Start off with a bunch of Sun As and Bs to warm up (or your choice)
  2. Low lunge
  3. High Lunge (Crescent Lunge)
  4. Virabhadrasana II (Warrior II)
  5. Trikonasana (Triangle Pose)
  6. Revolved Triangle (Hand to back leg, heart opener, not the twist-y variety)
  7. Five Pointed Star
  8. Take your arms into Gomukhasana (Face of Light or Cow Face Pose) arms
  9. Exhale, keeping arms like that, come into wide-legged forward fold
  10. Inhaling to come up, keeping arms like that, turn to back of room
  11. Exhale, lower into Parsvottanasana (Pyramid Pose) with Face of Light Arms
  12. Inhale, come up half-way and release arms
  13. Parivrtta Trikonasana (Revolved Triangle, the twist-y variety)
  14. Inhale, come up halfway
  15. Virabhadrasana III
  16. Back to Crescent Lunge
  17. Vinyasa
  18. Repeat from 1, making your way back to  the front of the room
  19. Complete with any cool-down 
  20. Savasana!
