Introduction: This class is designed for our remote distance learners! It focuses on the poses that reverse the effects of sitting in front of a computer for extended hours. It is designed to give a lift to the spirit. Whether it be doing backends to open the chest for better breathing, relaxation poses to reduce the strain on the eyes, or standing poses to strengthen the bones and improve posture, your learner will be exposed to an exciting blend of poses. In addition, the class is designed...
Students will learn: 1. Standing Poses, Forward Bends, Twists, Inversion Poses and Restorative Poses. 2. The English and Sanskrit names of the poses 3. The benefits of each pose. 4. Proper alignment in the poses. 5. Breathing and Relaxation Techniques 6. How to continue progressively practicing on their own. Special emphasis is placed on poses to help reverse the effect of extended hours at the computer.
Items Needed: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B086PMQJQH/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1 - This is an example of a starter kit that I recommend. Otherwise, each learner should have the following items: 1. A yoga mat 2. Two(2) Yoga Blocks 3. One(1) Yoga Strap Learners should dress in clothing that is easy and comfortable to move in.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
As with any physical exercise, doing yoga involves risk. My aim here to minimize such risks as much as possible. To ensure the safety of your learner please ensure the following: 1 That their camera is set up to show the full length of their body with their arms and legs outstretched in all directions. (*) 2.That they are hydrated and fed and given enough time to digest their food. 3. That they have the best equipment for their class. A sticky mat is compulsory. Yoga Blocks and Yoga Straps are advised. These are items in any starter yoga kit. Being against a wall is a nice to have. 4. That any major medical concerns are shared before-hand with me. Examples include a rotator cuff injury, back injury, major surgeries, anxiety, depression. In this way, I can tailor the class to best support them. 5. That they are appropriately dressed for the class with bare feet and clothing that is easy and comfortable to move in.
