Warm-up: The warm-up consists of pelvic tilts, heel lifts, squats and swaying; Feet hip-width apart and facing forward; Look ahead; Pull tummy button in towards your spine to engage supporting muscles. Ankle mobility: Balancing on one leg, slowly write letters of the alphabet with your foot and then repeat with the other foot; Feet hip-width apart and facing forward; Focus on a point ahead of you; Pull tummy button in towards your spine to engage supporting muscles; Monitor progress by how far you can reach in the alphabet before losing balance; Observe the differences on each side. Sun salutation: Begin with a roll down into a four-point kneeling position and then move into cobra; Return to the four-point kneeling position and roll up.

From there, move into cobra and then walk your hands back and roll up. Feet hip-width apart and facing forward; Breathe out to move; Progress to hinge only when your back is loose enough to do so. Balance – Split lunge, Standing star and Arabesque: Focus on maintaining balance; Look ahead while in a standing position; Pull tummy in towards your spine to engage supporting muscles; Lift upwards towards the ceiling; Breathe out to move to maintain control and increase range.
