These postures below will challenge our single leg balance, core stability, muscular strength or cardiovascular stamina.

The goal of this sequence is to stay tight and fluid as you transition from pose to pose. Once you make our way to the push-ups or core work, our focus should be on maintaining the best alignment possible, while challenging our strength.
