Restore and Renew Mon 10am

Subbing Susan’s restorative class.  This was so much fun for me. I was able to share my love of taking the time to restore in yoga and  reading some poetry.  In each of the postures I read a poem.

First warming all the joints with Mukunda Stiles Joint Freeing Series.  One of my favorite joint series, it really hits them all.  We did modify for the room and did not do the kneeling postures but did variations that covered most of those movements.

Pranayama: Sahaja, Dirgha   Setting up the bolster for more pranayama opening by lying over the bolster on the side body and letting the ribs open to the ceiling.  This posture is only held one minute each side.
