I will be taking the week off next week so there will be no class on August 10, 11 or 13. This is a good chance to start your home practice! There are lots of resources if you are one of those yogis that forgets everything you know when you step on your mat at home. There are podcasts online as well as suggested practices at the Yoga Journal website. At the Talkeetna library there are a few yoga books, videos, and dvds. My suggestion is to start with a few sun salutes and see what happens. You don’t even need a mat – just the will to practice.
The August focus is core strength, particularly as it relates to the pelvic floor. This is the basis of mula bandha and will help create stability in all your poses. Some of the poses we’ll focus on this month include triangle, half moon, and seated forward bends.
I’m interested in hearing what you’d like to study this fall. I’ll continue with my regular teaching schedule but would like to add another class. Some ideas include a conditioning class, a beginners/gentle class, and an advanced class. Let me know your interests and time and day preferences. For example, are you interested in 60 or 90 minute classes? morning or afternoon? what day works best?
Thanks so much and enjoy your yoga.
