Seated Warm-Up Sequence

Warm-up yoga sequence to include only seated postures.

Performing Seated Warm-Up Sequence prepares your entire body for a yoga session. This sequence warms up your muscles, and loosens stiff muscles to prevent injury. The Seated Warm-Up Sequence also increases flexibility of your joints and gets your blood circulating.
At the start of every yoga session, you should perform a warm-up sequence. The Seated Warm-Up Sequence prepares your body for a basic yoga session. If you are a beginner, or if you are performing a long yoga session, you should perform a longer warm-up sequence by following this sequence with Reclined Warm-Up Sequence.
Begin in Easy Pose.
Press your sitting bones toward the floor and point the crown of your head toward the ceiling to lengthen your spine.
Perform Neck Stretches to relax your head and warm up your neck.
Perform Shoulder Stretches to relieve tightness and tension in your upper back and shoulders.
Perform Arm Stretches to warm up your arms and improve circulation in your upper body.
Place your right palm on the floor beside your right hip and raise your left arm overhead.
Stretch to the right to move into Seated Side Bend and stretch the side of your body.
Perform Seated Side Bend for your other side and then return to Easy Pose.
Turn your upper body toward the right and move into Simple Twist.
(Simple Twist helps to increase the flexibility of your spine and upper back.)
Perform Simple Twist for your other side and then return to Easy Pose.
Bring the soles of your feet together in front of you to move into Bound Angle Pose.
(Bound Angle Pose provides a stretch to your groin and inner thighs.)

(Head to Knee Pose stretches the back of your legs.)
