  • Dragon Creeps Out (explore/reflect)

  • Warrior I - hands at heart center (truth, compassion, love)

  • Warrior I - Archers arms, about to release an arrow (focus)

  • Warrior II (peacekeeper, equanimity, compassion)

  • Revolved/Reversed Warrior (resilient discernment, go with the flow)

  • Vinyasa - traditional flow (refresh, refocus)

  • Uttitha Hasta Padangusthasana (agility, persistence, focus)
