Upside Down & Rock'n Roll
Reverse Arrow restores energy and improves circulation. Rock and Roll tones the spine and gets those abs working.
Back and Forth and Roar
A series of forward and backbending asanas loosens, strengthens and tones the spine. Roaring like a lion keeps the respiratory tract healthy.

Diving Pose strengthens the back and thighs and gets the heart pumping. Wrapping the body into a little ball offers a good spinal stretch, while Tree Pose improves balance.
Energy Charge Breathing
This simple but powerful exercise concentrates energy at the navel chakra, increasing strength and vitality. Wai Lana also demonstrates ways to strengthen and loosen joints, improve balance, and twist and bend backwards.
The King of Asanas
Headstand is best learned step by step, with the aid of a wall. Boat strengthens abs, Locust strengthens the spine, and Easy Wheel works on arms, thighs and buttocks.
Rock & Roll
Rock and roll, then twist about to wake up the spine and keep the internal organs happy. Then relax with a meditation that deepens the breath and calms the mind.
The Crunch Alternative
Wai Lana demonstrates two ab strengtheners for a firm, flat tummy. Two versions of Plough offer maximum stretch in the spine and hamstrings. A good leg stretch twist, too!
Roaring like a lion strengthens the vocal cords and massages the thyroid and facial muscles. It's good for skin care, too!
Striking Cobra and Headstand
This dynamic version of Cobra strengthens arms and tones the back. Wai Lana also does some upside down poses, including Headstand.
Snap, Crackle & Pop
No need to worry if tendons pop and crack during poses that exercise the joints from toes to fingertips. It's a good sign!
Plough In and Breathe!
Wai Lana starts off with an invigorating stretch and breathing exercise. She then introduces an easy way to do the Plough.
Ben, Twist and Balance
This series includes forward and back bends, spinal twists and balancing poses. You'll balance on one leg, and on your buttocks!
Expand The Chest and Breathe
Wai Lana shows how a cloth helps open tight shoulders, preparing for an asana that strengthens your lungs and allows full breathing. Good ab and arm strengtheners here, too!
Bend You Backbone
Lots of bending poses forward and back, up and down will make your spine strong and flexible. You'll also tone your buttocks and thighs.~
Bend, Twist and Release Tension
A single pose stretches hamstrings, stimulates the spine and opens the shoulders. A simple exercise, which can be done anywhere, relieves built-up tension in the neck and shoulders.
Wai Lana demonstrates Mountain Pose, the starting point for all standing asanas. Another yoga basic, Cat Stretch, shows the pelvic movement that's fundamental to many yoga poses and is recommended for many back problems.
Renew Your Energy
Release tension, strengthen your back, and revitalize your entire body with Wai Lana as she guides you through today's yoga session.
Fold your body over your feet in Arm Garland Pose, then fold over your shoulders for Karnapidasana. Both will give you flexible hips and a great back stretch.
Lift your body into Bow Pose, then rock back and forth on your belly. This gives your internal organs a powerful massage and helps remove fat from the abdomen.
Hold Your Toes!
Standing or lying down, holding your toes loosens the groin and stretches the thighs and hamstrings. Learn to balance while you stretch in Easy Crane, then strengthen your abs in Rocking Horse Pose.
