Morning Yoga Sequence With Playlist

Make Your Day Better With This Morning Yoga Sequence

Between the Sun Salutations and forward bends, this morning yoga sequence gets the body feeling stretched, limber, and ready to embrace the morning. Plenty of vinyasas (Four-Limbed Staff to Up Dog to Down Dog) link the sequences to get cardio in, and extra breaths in each posture will work like a mini meditation for the mind.

Yoga Pose Rounds/Breaths/Time
Child's Pose 1 Minute (until you hear the song say "all wash out")
Sun Salutations A 4 Rounds
Sun Salutations B 4 Rounds
Standing Forward Bend 10 Breaths + 1 Vinyasa
Warrior 1 Pose 10 Breaths on Each Side + 1 Vinyasa
Warrior 2 Pose 10 Breaths on Each Side + 1 Vinyasa
Half Moon Pose 10 Breaths on Each Side + 1 Vinyasa
Pigeon Pose 10 Breaths on Each Side + 1 Vinyasa
Seated Forward Bend 10 Breaths
Corpse Pose Take rest until the music runs out

Before you hit the mat, be sure to familiarize yourself with each posture, and get a feel for all the songs on the Spotify playlist. The timing is not an exact science since everyone works within their own individual breath, but if you hear the last song come on and you're not in Savasana, it's time to lie down and rest before taking on your day.

  1. "All Wash Out" — Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros
  2. "For What It's Worth (India Dub)" — DJ Drez and Joey Lugassy
  3. "Your Arms Around Me" — Jens Lekman
  4. "Better Than" — John Butler Trio
  5. "Flower" — Moby
  6. "Even After All" — Finley Quaye
  7. "All That I'm Good For" — Hem

You will need to download the free Spotify software or app to listen to our playlists.
