- Dvipâda pîtham or the Two Legged Table Pose + 1 sequence. It is a simple, short series of poses and some guidelines on how to intensify it slightly, after a week of practice.

- Bhujangâsana or the Cobra Pose + 1 sequence with Bhujangâsana and the Two Legged Table Pose

- Shalabhâsana, or the Locust Pose + 3 sequences. Here, the same posture is used in different contexts and with different goals.

- Dhanurâsana and ardha dhanurâsana + 2 sequences, which were designed with these two concepts in mind. They have different contexts and objectives. In the first one, there is an exercise with the Half Bow Pose, combined with the Half Locust Pose and a table showing a progression for this exercise (vinyâsa-krama). In sequence 2, we have the complete Bow Pose as the central exercise. There is a vinyâsa-krama for the static and dynamic phases.
