Full-Length Bird of Paradise Yoga Flow to Improve Your Strength, Balance, and Flexibility

do you need to be flexible to do yoga?

No, you don't have to be flexible to do yoga but you will become flexible with practice.

Let me take you along as I share some of the yoga poses included in my full-length bird of paradise flow. These poses  together will improve your strength, flexibility, and balance.


Forward Fold

Turn your toes forward, feet parallel, and fold yourself in. Interlace your hands behind your back and take a few deep breaths. Feel your shoulder blades draw back together. 


pyramid pose

Place your legs hip distance apart and step forward with the right foot. Imagine pulling your feet together to keep your hips facing straight forward and fold over your upper body on your right leg. 


half splits

In my yoga flow, you will get in the half splits from the low lunge. You will straighten your left leg to get into the half splits.



Your back foot is at a 45-degree angle, and your front foot is aligned to the middle of your back foot. You are tucking your back hip under 


Half moon

From triangle pose, walk your left fingertips forward as you shift your weight on your left foot to lift your right leg.
