Warrior poses are some of the most common well known poses in yoga. Strong poses that reflect inner resolve. The transition from warrior 1 to warrior 3 is one that I really enjoy and with a few other poses can elicit a really strong and powerful balance challenge. Which you can try in this 7 minute yoga flow!

7 minute yoga flow
This 7 minute yoga flow is all standing. So it’s great for anyone with wrist issues. Plus it’s also fun to do post-workout when you’re at your wobbliest, to really challenge your balance! Start in tadasana with three grounding breaths. There are three rounds of work in this class. Each one progressively more challenging.
From standing, sit into chair pose. After that, lift the right heel and send the leg behind you planting the foot to the floor. Stand in warrior 1, with the option to lift the arms overhead.
Push off the back foot, and rise into standing with the back leg lifted away from the floor. Then tip forward into warrior 3. Find your balance.
After that rise back to standing bringing the back leg through to the front. As a result coming into another standing balance pose to challenge stability and strength.
Subsequently, put the foot back down and stand back into tadasana, mountain pose. Repeat everything on the other side. To sum up, this class is short and sweet but challenges balance and strength.

Awesome, happy to hear that!
I am a huge fan of yoga. It really relaxes me and keeps me calm during times when life seems so overwhelming. I love your easy step-by-step instructions!
Thank you! Glad you liked it
Very nice and easy exercise in only seven minutes. I need to improve my balance and I think that I can do it by doing this flow. ver nice explained and demonstrated.
Thank you! Hope you try it!
I love that you do short versions of your yoga routines, so easy to incorporate into daily activities plus you really explained it well and clearly, very helpful for beginners
Thanks! Yep, I like short & sweet ways to get more movement into my day
These are some of my favorite yoga poses. I think my balance is must better than my strength!
Same on both legs? I find my right leg is stronger and has better balance! You?
I love the balance aspect in this sequence. That is one thing that I have been wanting to work on more as of late. I used to have good balance and it seems to have gotten worse over time, likely due to not working on it. Running through this a couple of times each week is sure to help me improve on it.
Yes balance gets worse over time. One of the reasons so many older people fall. And yes it would improve your running
nice sequence. perfect for a quicky. I started doing it more when I started a challenge of practicing yoga everyday. when I don’t have time or place to normally practice I do short standing sequence. By the way, you used several of your flows and are super grateful for it!
That’s awesome to hear! So happy you’ve found them useful!
Love this routine as it looks easy to get started and no one can say that they can’t afford 7 minutes for the benefits that yoga provides. The video you have included here to demonstrate is really very helpful. You definitely do have good balance!
Hahahaha thanks. You should see the bloopers! I suffer with vertigo, so I have good days and definitely A LOT of bad days with balance!
Very nice step-by-step! I haven’t taken a yoga class in years, but I should get back into it before it’s too cold to do any exercise outside.
I’m with ya! My fitness changes a lot with the season!
