Well known to yogis, the sun salutation is a complete and fast sequence of yoga postures: a few minutes a day are enough to circulate energy in your body and start your day off right.
Inspired by our practice, YUJ imagined the YOGINI set: the perfect outfit for the yogi who feels good in his body and in his skin! Whether you are a beginner or advanced, let's take together these few basic postures that will soon be in your dressing room 😉
- DOWNWARD DOG - Adho Mukha Svanasana
Downward facing dog is often performed as a preparatory pose. It is performed with the hands and feet pushing against the ground to support the weight of the body.
To accentuate the stretch, push your shoulders and shoulder blades outward and try to lift your hips as high as possible.
Benefits: By stretching the spine, this position relieves back pain.
- UPHEAD DOG - Urdhva Mukha Svanasana
The upward facing dog position can be done by anyone, especially people who are new to yoga. Be sure to keep your shoulders down and your neck straight to reap all the benefits of this posture.
Benefits: Strengthens the wrists and lower back and stretches the spine.
- WARRIOR I – Virabhadrasana
Warrior I pose is a standing lunge. Keeping your hips and back straight, step forward and bend your front knee and straighten your back leg. The front foot should be on the same line as the knee and the front leg parallel to the ground. Finally, clasp your hands above your head, keeping your arms straight and shoulders down.
Benefits: Strengthens abdominal, shoulder, leg and back muscles, and builds flexibility in shoulders, hips and legs.
- CHAIR - Utkatasana
Chair pose involves balancing on an invisible “chair.” Keeping your feet and knees together and your back straight, swing your hips back to find a seated position.
Benefits: Strengthens hips and thighs, improves balance and helps stimulate the heart and diaphragm.
