If you're looking for a quick,
invigorating sequence of standing poses for your
home practice, you'd do well to focus on the five
warrior poses. Though you may be familiar with these
poses, there is a lot of subtle detail you can bring
to the alignment while also strengthening your legs
and core and working on forward bending and back
bending. Do a few sun salutations first to warm up
if you have time (and refer to our suggested
sequences if you want to design a longer session).
Decide ahead of time how many breaths you want to
hold each pose in order to customize the intensity
of the sequence. If you're not sure, start with
three breaths per pose. For a more cardio
sequence, move to a new pose on each breath.

provides your body with a steady flow of nutrients,
but even when you make healthful choices about your
meals and snacks, your body can still benefit from
an occasional break from all-day eating.
