Free time after work is precious, and a short yoga practice can bring some balance and clarity to your routine. You might not have time to hit up a lengthy studio class after the office, but you do have time to flow through a short 20-minute sequence.

Press play below to kick off the warrior yoga playlist [1], and begin by building internal heat with five rounds of Sun Salutation A [2] followed by five rounds of Sun Salutation B [3]. Once you're good and loosened up, move through the rest of these powerful poses. Your body and mind will thank you.

You will need to download the free Spotify [4] software or app to listen to our playlists.
