challenging power yoga sequence

Here is a yoga sequence from the class I taught yesterday:

Begin warming up with a series of sun salutations.

Once warm, continue on with this challenging power yoga sequence--

*hold pose 5 breaths before moving on to the next posture.

*Downward facing dog* (Adho Mukha Svanasana)

Lift right leg and swing through

*Warrior 1* (Virabhadrasana I)

*Warrior 2* (Virabhadrasana II)

*Reverse Warrior 2* (Urdva Virabhadrasana II)

*Extended Side Angle* (Parksvakonasana)

Inhale back up to Warrior 2

Straighten front leg and prepare for Triangle

*Triangle* (Utthita Trikonasana)

*Pyramid* (Parsvottanasana)

*Standing Split* (Urdhva Prasarita Eka Padasana)

*High Lunge*

*Revolved Side Angle Pose* (Parivrtta Parsvakonasana)

*Low Lunge with both arms resting on inside of right leg-lower upper body down*

*One legged King Pigeon* (Eka Pada Rajakapotasana)

*Downward facing dog*

Lift left leg and repeat all on other side

Don't forget to breathe, breathe, breathe!

Peace, Love, Lipstick, & Namaste'

Thank you Leslie,

I used this sequence in my class last night and it was great and indeed challenging for my students.

I'd be very grateful for more sequences as I'm sometimes running out of ideas.

Warm regards from Holland
