Inhale - Lift your arms up
Exhale - Standing Forward Bend
Inhale - Look up and lengthen the spine
Exhale - 4 Limbed Staff (Chaturanga)
Inhale - Up Dog
Exhale - Down Dog
Inhale - Warrior 1 with the right foot forward
Exhale - Warrior 2
Inhale - straighten your front leg
Exhale - come into Open Triangle
Inhale - lift your torso up to standing
Exhale - bend your front knee, coming into Extended Side Angle (stay here or come into Bound Extended Side Angle)

Probably a stupid question but, why don't I see a video anywhere? I just see the text explanation.

Don't be fooled. This is hard. This is advanced yoga I wouldn't do arm balancing as a beginner. It takes time to move into a flow . Practice makes perfect though.

This warrior sequence used to be my favorite when I started yoga. She makes it look so easy in the video, but it is SO HARD!

Holy COW! The balancing one is NEAT. I'm gonna try to do that everyday.

I run and cycle and have a really tight lower body but I've been doing your videos for the last two weeks and I'm noticing better flexibilty, so thank you Miss Fit! Tthe only thing I can't bear is the trippy hare krishna type music that goes with yoga, does anyone know of a DVD that I could buy which is accompanied by a rousing sound track which doesn't include chanting, singing whales or esoteric wailing?

Thanks for this great sequence! Is there a preparatory pose or a variation for Eka Pada Koundinyasana 2 that I could use to work up to the full pose? I practice regularly but I don't think I'm quite there yet, and I would love to work toward mastering that balancing pose!
