These are three of the most popular yoga postures that you'll find incorporated into almost every yoga practice. Learn how to make these poses your own with unique modifications using props, alignment tips, self-adjustments, and more.

Forward Folds

Tight hamstrings, sore lower backs, and abundant middles can all contribute to challenges in forward folding yoga poses. This lesson focuses on specific modifications and props and that you incorporate in popular forward folding poses. You'll take a closer look at classic standing forward folds, wide legged forward folds, and wall-assisted variations. By the end of this lesson, you'll learn how to gain all the benefits of each pose, without compromising the safety and comfort of your body.

Warrior Series

Warrior poses are the ultimate expression of standing in your power! Warrior 1, 2 and 3 give you the opportunity to feel fierce - like the victorious warrior that you are. So, don't miss out the Warrior series - these are poses that you definitely want to make your own. In this practice, you'll learn how to modify each Warrior pose so that it accommodates your hips, thighs, knees, and bellies.

Seated Poses

This lesson offers modifications to help you customize Easy Cross Legged Pose, Hero Pose and Seated Forward Fold. For this practice, you’ll want to keep some yoga blocks, blankets, and bolsters or cushions nearby. By the end of this lesson, you’ll know exactly which props work best for you when it comes to seated yoga poses.

Twists

Abundant bellies, thighs, low back injuries, sore knees, and tight hips - all make twisting poses challenging. Twists can be uncomfortable - but they don't have to be! In this lesson, you'll learn how to customize kneeling twists, seated twists, and marichyasana pose. The principles you'll gather in this lesson can be applied to almost every single twisting yoga posture, so that you can make twists more accessible in your practice.

Vinyasa

Moving from one pose to the next in a classic Sun Salutation or in an interesting flowing style can feel like dancing. But, it can also be painful, uncomfortable and inaccessible! When transitions are quick in pace, it can be easy to feel left behind. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to customize a standard vinyasa in a way that works for you. For this practice, you’ll want to set up close to a wall. Also, be sure to keep your props nearby for easier access.

Arm Balances

Arm balances are a great way to build upper body strength… plus, they look cool! Customizing popular arm balancing poses like Side Plank, Handstand, and Headstand, can help alleviate the fears of going upside. 

Take Rest

Almost every single yoga practice ends in Savasana, or Corpse pose. This important posture is designed to allow you to absorb the benefits of your practice. This pose should honour your body and allow to take full and complete rest.
