Breathing deep into the hips and hamstring. Tues

After 6 days of pranayama teacher training we will be breathing deeply into the stretches tonight.  With deep hip openers the need  for deep breaths will be apparent.  Slow  deep work tonight.

Pranayama:  over 2 blocks,  Dirgha (long breath), box breath

Starting on the back with Jathara Parivartanasana (supine twist) to cradle with a twist, hip rotations. Finding the abdominal  muscles with Tias Little work that we haven’t explored for awhile.  Roll up then roll like a ball.

(Purvottanasana variation (reverse table) work and seated cradle work (Raja Kapotasana variation). Cross squat to Marjariasana (cat), cat rolls.   Raja Kapotasana variation (Swan or king pigeon), Anajeyasana (runner) with hip openers.   Tri Yogas penguin & frog with squashed frog 😛  Balasana (child),  Sukasana variation (pelvis leveler).

Aromatherapy oils here before continuing with the openings. Supta Padangusthasana (supine hamstring stretch) with a weight plate on the other thigh to hold it down.  Ananda Balasana (happy baby),  Supta Baddhakonasana (supine cobbler), savasana (tranquility).
