upper back strength

Class Recordings: February 15, 2018

This week we focused on preparing upper body strength for adho mukha svanasana (downward facing dog), as well as a breathing ratio with pause after inhale and exhale to build capacity to work with bandhas later in the spring. The meditation object was the moon and light--with the intention of helping students recognize their inner knowing, even when it seems covered and hazy. My hope was that a meditation on moonlight would also have a cooling, soothing affect after the work of so many back-bending and core strengthening postures.

Class Recordings, January 11, 2018

Please enjoy these recordings from my regular weekly yoga classes on Thursday, January 11, 2018.

Both classes emphasize building upper back strength in forward bending and backward bending poses, with the goal of preparing for twisting poses and the seated forward-bend, janu sirsasana. The yoga poses, breathing and meditation were also designed to give a "cleansing" effect, which is useful at the beginning of the year, after the excesses and disruption of the holidays.
