Four yoga poses that make your sequence flow

Making a yoga sequence is one of the most fun things to do. You can get really, really creative, but there are some moments you might get stuck. Here are four yoga poses that make your sequence flow and always will get you out of trouble when you get stuck with your yoga sequence.

Tadasana

Tadasana might be the most basic yoga position there is. Almost all flows who start from standing will have Tadasana as first yoga pose. That’s also why it is the first of your four yoga poses that make your sequence flow. As long as you get people back to Tadasana you can go everywhere again: a sun salutation, forward bend, standing balancing posture and all other poses you can think off.

Prasarita stands

Prasarita stands or wide legged stands is your second basic pose. You get there in one step from Tadasana. So those two already link together. From your wide legend stands you can get into prasarita padottanasana, triangle pose, lateral angle stretch and even into a tripod headstand, frog, splits and more.

Downward facing dog

Downward facing dog is your third of your four yoga poses that make your sequence flow. It’s only a few breaths away from Tadasana and it will give you a wide range of motion to move into. You can rest in child’s pose by sinking your knees to the floor. You can play with your dog and move it into a three legged dog, wild thing, rock star, pigeon or a back bend like camel pose by coming onto your knees and extending your upper body.

Dandasana

The last pose that will always get you out of trouble is dandasana – staff posture. Simple sitting up straight with your legs straight forward brings you in forward folds, but it can also help you to transit to backbends, by just laying down on your back. If you want to go hardcore, you can use dandasana to get into Eka Hasta Bhujasana – leg-over-shoulder pose, boat pose or other abdominal work. You can also ‘go soft’ and roll on your back to go into shoulder stand.

So if you ever get stuck or you have no idea where to go just bring your students into one of these four asanas and you are good to go from here.

    You can also go from downward dog to a lot of standing poses by lifting a foot up and then putting it between both hands
