Yoga fitness is a combination of strength, flexibility and good cardio respiratory endurance. Often times our cardio respiratory endurance is not challenged so vinyasa flow yoga can be performed in combination with traditional Hatha yoga practices.
This yoga fitness sequence combines arm strengthening poses with 2 standing spinal twists. Many of the leg and hip muscles are also stretched. The hamstrings and calf muscles are lengthened in Downward Dog pose and the hip muscles are stretched in the spinal twists. The first spinal twist involves the knee being bent so that it is easier to enter and prepares the body for the second spinal twist with the leg straight.
Here is the instructions for the yoga fitness flow.
