Two new videos!
I uploaded 2 new videos to my YouTube channel today. These are from today's classes. Just playing around before class, I decided to record what I was doing. I'm not quite sure yet where these videos are headed. I know that one day I would like to dub music and instruction, or get good enough to instruct while I am demonstrating. But perhaps they will be inspiration to other yoga instructors to get creative, to students to feel the flow or practice something at home, a teaching tool? I am always open to feedback, so please contact me if you have something to say! Constructive is always best! :)
The first one:
This flow is meant to warm up the class quickly, moving straight through
integrating the mind and body into core strengthening plank variations,
Anjaneyasana (crescent moon) into Pyramid to open up hip flexors then
hamstrings, and straight into a Sun B flow.
The second one:
This sequence moves from Crescent Lunge, then straightens the front leg and
twists into Parivrtta Trikonasana (revolved triangle), finding a deep twist as
you lengthen side body, hip back, ground into big toe mound, and twist through
thoracic spine. From here bend standing leg to flow into Parivrtta Ardha
Chandrasana (revolved half-moon), continuing to expand through the torso,
deepening the twist. Then, focus on the transition into Parivrtta Natarajasana
(revolved dancer), feel the body grow and expand into the full posture. Land in
Utkatasana, and Prayer Twist. Shift the weight onto one foot, and extend the
other leg back into Revolved Crescent Lunge. Straighten the front leg and find
Parivrtta Trikonasana again. Next comes the arm balance, Parivrtta
Koundinyasana. Notice how this posture is almost identical to revolved triangle,
but the weight is on the arms rather than the feet! Have fun!
