Week 1: Standing poses
This Foundational grounding sequence covering the classic standing poses. These poses help us to connect with in our inherent mental and physical strength as we build endurance and ground with Muladhara chakra. Within this class we begin the approach to inversions.
Week 2: Forward bends
Learning to fold the body into a place of surrender. Forward bends are introverted and are calming to the nervous system as they quieten the adrenal glands and are good for headaches, tiredness, and heat.
Week 3: Backbends
Backbends are uplifting, help anxiety and depression. They can help the closed chest syndrome of the western world, connect us with our heart chakra and help us access deeper, fuller breath.
Week 4: Restorative and Pranayama
This sequence will bring deep rest into the body and mind. It requires no energy, and helps to bring us to a relaxed state mentally and physically. We shall look at the basics of controlled breath with beginner's Pranayama.
Week 5: Miscellaneous poses with a focus on the lower back
We shall focus on twists and forward bends to release the back. Poses that bring you towards the spine are emotionally settling and grounding.
I look forward to sharing these wonderful life enhancing wisdom teachings.
