In winter we need more circulation to create warmth in the body. There are a number of ways to achieve this in your yoga practice. One way is the practice of linking poses. When poses are linked together and repeated a number of times without interruption, the sequence builds stamina and creates heat.
Keep in mind that as you are learning the sequence, each pose should be performed slowly and carefully, paying close attention to alignment.  The transitions from one pose to the next are facilitated by either an inhalation or an exhalation.  Breathe through the nose and keep the breath smooth and even.  When the sequence comes easily, you can pick up the pace.Warming SequenceTADASANA (Mountain Pose)
Stand with your feet parallel and slightly apart. Balance your weight equally between the two feet, firm the thighs and lengthen the spine
Bring the hands together at the center of the chest
. Gently broaden the palms against one another and lengthen the fingers. Inhale, expand and lift the chest
. Exhale, relax the shoulders. Keep your eyes level and soft.
URDVHA HASTASANA (Upward Hands Pose) Keeping the legs firm and stable, inhale and raise the arms over head. At the same time lift and open the chest. Palms should be facing each other.
UTTANASANA (Forward Extension Pose)
Exhale, bend forward from the hip joints and lower the torso and head. Place your hands beside the feet (or on blocks if you can’t reach the floor). Release the crown of the head toward the floor. Inhale, lift the chest and head, look forward.
ADHO MUKHA SVANASANA (Downward Facing Dog Pose)
Exhale, bend the knees and step or jump the feet back. Make sure to place the feet parallel and slightly apart.
Straighten the legs
, press the hands evenly down into the floor and extend the arms. Move the upper thighs away from the hands and descend the heels. (Please note: if you are stepping the feet back, be sure to start with the opposite foot at the next attempt.)

This is the mid point of the sequence. It is here that you will reverse your movements.

UTTANASANA (Forward Extension Pose)
Inhale, look forward, bend the knees and step or jump the feet forward between the hands
.  Straighten the legs, raise the chest and head, and look forward.  Exhale, lower the torso and head.
URDVHA HASTASANA (Upward Hand Pose) Inhale, raise the torso upward and the arms over the head, palms facing each other.
Exhale, place the hands together in front of the chest. Inhale, lift and open the chest.
TADASANA (Mountain Pose) Exhale, extend the arms alongside the body.

This completes one cycle. The cycle can be repeated a number of times.

Do not practice this sequence as it is presented in this article if you are pregnant or menstruating. If you have knee or back problems, or any other medical condition do not jump between the poses and consult with an experienced Yoga teacher for any modifications that may be necessary.
