For the lovers of stretching and star signs – this is for you… Don’t expect anything relating to relationships, career, travel or money here – it’s all about the best poses for your sign, body and of course your practice.
Fingers (and probably legs and arms too!) crossed that you’re a fan of the suggested bendy moves.
Sign: Aries (March 21–April 20)
Poses: Oh Aries, always the first one in line—sometimes you need to learn how to relax. Try a calming standing forward bend, head-to-knee pose, and savasana.
Sign: Taurus (21 April–21 May)
Pose: Cow pose, cat pose, and bridge can help you release pent up stress in the head, neck, and shoulders.
Sign: Gemini (22 May–21 June)
Pose: You take on a lot of responsibility at once. Take a load off with bow pose, cobra pose, and downward facing dog.
Sign: Cancer (22 June –22 July)
Pose: With characteristics like a crab, you tend to retreat into your shell. Focus on chest and heart-opening poses like upward plank pose, half moon pose, and dancer’s pose.
Sign: Leo (23 July –22 August)
Pose: Confident and sincere, you may forget to protect one of the most sensitive areas—the spine. Counteract this habit with lion pose, camel pose, and revolved triangle.
Sign: Virgo (23 August–23 September)
Pose: Virgos can be critical and cold, but peacock pose, full boat pose, and seated twisting pose can help open you up physically and emotionally and find your warm and fuzzy.
Sign: Libra (24 September–23 October)
Pose: Keep your signature sense of balance ever so solid with tree pose, extended hand-to-toe pose, or side crane pose.
Sign: Scorpio (24 October–22 November)
Pose: An intense and passionate sign, you have a fiery sexual nature. Release energy and relax the pelvis through camel pose, lotus pose, and wide-angle seated forward bend.
Sign: Sagittarius (23 November–21 December)
Pose: As a Sagittarius, you are predisposed to movement. Which, if you haven’t noticed, causes your hips to tighten up. Counteract any hip stress with lizard pose, half pigeon pose, and high lunge
Sign: Capricorn (22 December–20 January)
Pose: With a symbol like the mountain goat, you’re surefooted and steadfast. Because of this, alignment is key for you. Strengthen your signature knees with chair pose, mountain pose, and tree pose.
Sign: Aquarius (21 January–19 February)
Pose: For you, it’s all about the calves and ankles. Lotus pose, eagle pose, or revolved side angle can help shift focus to movement forward and versus rebellion.
Sign: Pisces (20 February–20 March)
Pose: You’re selfless and spiritual. But without feet, how can you expect to feel grounded? Make sure to connect to the earth through mountain pose, half frog pose, and standing split.
