YOGA - Wed 7-8pm : Dynamic Hatha.
« on: Feb 11, 2011, 12:30:45 AM »
one yoga club : for lgbtq women

These are mixed ability classes suitable for beginners & those with more experience.

Classes are fun & light hearted, with an emphasis on learning how to be healthy & at peace in our day-to-day lives.

Through asana (postures) and pranayama (breath work) students will be taught the foundations of their anatomy & how to hold their bodies in good allignment.

This will be especially useful for those with muscular skeletal discomfort as well as stress related disorders.

All classes will integrate aspects of yoga psychology with a strong emphasis on using the practice as a tool for harnessing our powers of awareness & attention.

You are welcome  :)

Tonight will be a mixed bag dependent on who is there.
But we will definitely be covering standing forward bends, some of which involve a bit of balance (one legged foundations!), some hand foundation balance postures.... of which one might be inverted (handstand  ;D ).

See you on ze mat  :)

^ more of this tomorrow night.

We'll look in more detail at the correct technique for forward bends, and the anatomy of the pelvis and the hamstrings.
We'll also look at the 'jump forwards/jump backs' in Sury A and B (expect many bunny hops ....).
You will cover the correct breath work for back bends and forward bends, and there will be a bit of a play with ..... *gasp* ..... some of you teaching the rest of us  ;D

No better way to be sure that you understand what you are doing, than by trying to teach it to someone else!

Get you schmoga on:D

Hi Guineapig,

I've just noticed that you have two yoga threads .... :)

Did you manage to find out about the parking situation? 

Would you consider also running yoga classes in one of London's parks in the summer?  On a Saturday or Sunday afternoon perhaps? I and at least one other person I know would be interested in something like this. 

Thanks :)

Hi.
Yes there are 2! I think I'm going to run it past the Admin to consolidate them.
It was because there was the original thread that was about what people thought of the notion of the classes/space, the space was created and so had to be posted in The Notice Board section, then the original one became a sorta feedback/general questions thread....but that is also occurring here!
Doh!

So, I'll try and sort that.

But, for clarity I'm going to quote your post and reply to it in the 'general' thread.
Hope that's ok.

Tonight's class will be a mixture of what yoga teachers broadly call 'dynamic/flow/vinyasa'.
In other words, we will be running through a steady stream of asanas/poses, to build heat in the body, and determination in the spirit.

In the last portion of the class, we will revisit pincha mayurasana.



Initial stages will use the wall and a partner as a prop, with the intention of finding balance and poise, before testing ourselves and moving into the full pose.

All levels of students are welcome to attend.
Don't be put of by the acrobatic image - there are many stages to play with before we take the body into the full inversion!

See you on ze mat!
 :D

Tonight's class will mainly focus on standing postures, using parts of the Astanga Vinyasa Primary series. We will combine these sequences with chest and shoulder opening, and opening of the front of the thigh, leading us to Urdhva Dhanurasana:



See you on ze mat!
