Mountain Pose (Tadasana)
Start with the foundational pose for all standing yoga postures “Mountain Pose” to improve posture and balance.

Inhale back to center hold the breath and switch, grab your right wrist with your left arm, exhale with bending over towards the left.

Warrior I (Virabhadra I)
This pose increase self-confidence, strength, and balance. It’s lovely to do it in the morning.
Start with spreading your legs three to four feet apart so that you are standing in a straddle pose. Turn your feet to the right so that the left foot turns 45 degrees toward the right side of the mat and the right foot turns to face directly toward the right side of the mat. Exhale and bend your right knee at a 90-degree angle so that the shin is perpendicular to the floor. Raise your arms perpendicular to the floor and make it parallel to each other.
Hold for four to seven breaths. If you’re finished, take a deep breath and move to the next pose

From a Warrior I Pose, exhale and reach your arms out to the sides parallel to the ground and shoulder blades wide, palms down.
Stay and breathe for five to eight deep breaths.
Downward Dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana)
Place both hands on the floor on either side of the right foot, step the right foot back to meet the left as you come into Downward Facing Dog Pose for deeply stretches the back, opens the chest, and builds upper body strength. If you can’t straighten your knees you can bend it like the image, make sure the spine is straight.
Hold here for eight to ten breaths.
Then walk your feet to the front and do Warrior I & Warrior II poses for the left side.
Cat and Cow Pose (Marjaryasana, Bitilasana)
After doing the postures on the left side, come into tabletop position, make sure that the shoulder is over the wrists and your knees underneath the hips. Start with cow pose, inhale and drop your belly towards the mat, roll back the shoulders, and gaze up toward the sky. In exhale, move to cat pose. Carve your belly toward the spine and round your back toward the ceiling and rotate the chin to the chest. Inhale and move to cow pose, then move to cat pose with exhaling.
