Tutorial 1:

Viparita Parivrtta Surya Yantrasana
Super Soldier Pose or Inverted Compass pose

Level of difficulty 3/5

Step 1: Start from Uttanasana; be sure to have a steady, balanced, deep forward fold

Step 2: Take the right leg backward, in high lunge. Slide the left arm underneath the left leg. The left shoulder should be comfortably placed under the left leg.

Step 3: Gaze the floor, and breathe deeply. Suck the belly in, Inhale, bend the right leg, and grab the right foot firmly with the left hand.

Take a moment to calm the mind. Sometimes, when we are inverted, it might create a rush of adrenaline that can disturb the balance.
