Solstice Yoga sequence for Grounding & Invigorating

  1. Start in Mountain Pose (Tadasana) with hands on your forehead in prayer, grounding and centering yourself. (5-10 breaths)

2. Move through Sun Salutation A: reaching your arms up towards the sky with a backbend, flow through forward fold, R leg lunge back, L leg back to plank, chaturanga to lower body to floor, cobra by lifting head and chest, downward facing dog, lunge R, forward fold and roll up to mountain pose, raising arms and back-bending, rest with your hands at your heart to enjoy. Repeat L (1-3 repeats each side)

3. Transition to Tree Pose (Vrksasana) to symbolize grounding and connection to the earth. (5 breaths/side)

4. Flow into Warrior 1 (Virabhadrasana I), stretching tall with arms reaching to the sky. Look up to the sun as you sink into your legs. This strong pose energises you. (8 breaths/side)

5. Continue with Warrior 2 (Virabhadrasana II), opening your chest and gazing over your front fingertips. Drop into your legs to work a little harder and feel the power of this hip opener. (8 breaths/side)

6. Move into Triangle Pose (Trikonasana), spreading your arms wide as you reach towards the sky and ground. Relax and stretch your back. (3 breaths/side)

6. Goddess Pose to feel the power flowing through your body as you look up. Open your hands to the sky to symbolise having all that you need. (3-5 breaths)

7. Finish with Corpse Pose (Savasana), lying on your back with legs extended, arms by your sides, and eyes closed as you connect with the energy of the solstice. (1-10 mins)

Take a few moments to reflect on the energy of the sun and the longest day of the year, feeling rejuvenated and aligned with the changing seasons.
