This is exactly the flow of one-legged balances that I needed. Very calming, too. Thank you!

warm thanks @WendyMarie for sharing your feedback on this hatha flow ... a bit of 'balancing' at the beginning of the day goes a long way for a harmonious day

Great early AM practice before a longer workout or just for early AM rising. Lovely!

warm thanks @jojomojoyoga ... I am particularly drawn to practices that ground the nervous system and offer a balance against the busy, external energies often around us ... hence, I aim to reflect this in my teachings

Kreg - I appreciate many of your videos, and this one is extra special. It provided a perfect transition from a jog/run and helped me reconnect to my inner self and feel very grounded…ready to be in the world another day. Thank you.

I absolutely love these shorter flows. When I'm limited on time, it allows me to fit yoga into my day, or I can put several together for a longer flow, depending on what I want to work on that day. Thank you for these.

Fantastic for a short practice!

Kreg, you must also have had years of training in dance, as your movements are the most beautiful and graceful I have even seen in yoga. You truly make observing you an art. This was a nice compliment to your other 11 minute balancing video. One intense, than one relaxed. I am now ready for floor and savasana. Thank you.

Wow! I actually feel taller!

Another of Kreg's wonderful short flows that fit into every day however packed with other stuff. This one got me right back on track beautifully grounded, centered and re-energized. Thanks!

hi suedue, thank you for your warm feedback ... yes, i love warrior 3 in how it can be done by almost anyone and offers such tremendous benefits: opening the hamstrings of the supporting leg, conditioning the hips and back body, developing focus and proprioception skills. namaste, Kreg

SueDue, posted on June 2, 2012

I loved the sequence of getting into warrior 3 and the subtle nuances of these poses. Kreg is easily one of my top 3 favorite teachers, if not number 1! HIs classes are awesome!!

hi stecky - glad to hear you enjoyed this practice - thank you very much for making this practice part of your day. namaste Kreg

AMAZING! Thank you very much.

hi noura ... yes, this is a great practice to follow a run or workout - it complements the recovery of muscles by flushing out lactic acid (sending LA to the liver to be converted back to usable energy). Namaste, Kreg

Great to do post a run!!!

marcestrada, posted on May 10, 2012

I'm a beginner and I was looking for a quick practice to start the day and this one turned out to be PERFECT!

oriana827, posted on May 2, 2012

Thank you, Greg, for your help. I neglected to tell you that I am 66 years old and have had hip surgery on one side and an earlier surgery in which some front abdominal muscles were removed. Am enjoying this website very much. Best wishes, Oriana

Looking for a quick yoga practise to improve your balancing? This is a great video...

loved it! thank you!

kregweiss, posted on May 1, 2012

hi oriana827, Tree pose is a great foundation to work from for balancing. With poses like Warrior 3, you now move your center of gravity out of the traditional mountain pose lines as well as your drishti (focal point). Some tips key for Warrior 3:
*most people tend to fall outside of the pose - start with open arms like a T shape as this will increase your stability as well as condition your body to open the heart center ... ground through the big toe mount to stabilize through the inner foot
*avoid grasping the ground with your toes and instead fan the toes lightly so you are engaging, instead, the toe mounds and heel point (think 'stable tripod')
*avoid rigidity - keep a micro softness in the supporting knee so this bottom thigh can readily absorb adjustments
*as you tilt forward, pause at stages so you can gradually shift your focal point to the new angle of the pose
*breathe! holding the breath creates rigid - try to remain fluid and receptive
*you can also step off your mat to a more firm surface
Hope these tips offer some help :)
Namaste, Kreg

oriana827, posted on May 1, 2012

Kreg I use a lot of your easier yoga videos and tried this one, but my balance is not so good. I do your core fluidity video regularly and still the warrior 3 pose is not easy for me. I can do a pretty good tree pose (most days!). Any suggestions on how to improve balance? Could we perhaps have a beginning balance video with more pointers?

Healthy. Safe. Opening. Welcoming. Energized. Relaxed. Smiling. THANK YOU!
