Late Fall Vinyasa

Yes we are still in the fall season...but is anyone noticing a desire for more heat, back bending, twisting, and inversions to balance from the dampness and the lack of light? Here is what I am doing to compliment the external environment:

1. Standing meditation
2. Uddiyana bandha
3. Kapala bhati breathing in Horse/Straddle
4. Prasaritta Padottansana variations w/twists
5. More Horse/Straddle and variations
6. Tadasana into a flow with side bend
7. Uttanasana
8. Plank - to - Vasisthasana (both sides)
9. Bhujangasana (cobra)
10. Urdva Mukha Svanasana (up dog)
11. Adho Mukha Svanasana (down dog)
12. Drop down to your knees, Vajrasana (both sides)
13. All fours
14. Adho Mukha Svanasana- Uttanasana - Tadasana
15. Parsva Utkatasana (revolved chair) - Step back twisting lunge- Step back up
16. Parsva Bakasana (side crane)
17. Malasana
18. Bakasana or Sirsasana II (tripod headstand)
19. Uttanasana - Tadasana (repeat other side)
20. Adho Mukha Svanasana - Plank - Dhanurasana - Parsva Dhanurasana
21. Gomukasana (original and modern version)
22. Supine...fill in the blank!

Have fun...if you need more support, check out my DVD, Yoga for the Seasons.
