Staying Home. Part 2/2
May I be happy, May I be healthy, May I be safe, May my heart be light and at ease. (Metta) Loving Kindness Meditation. Intermediate level vinyasa flow class peaking towards pinchamayurasana. With the help of two yogini friends practicing and demonstrating behind her, Twee, Jen, & Sally offer three variations of asanas at any one given time, throughout the sequence building up to a peak pose of fore arm balance (pinchamayurasana)....and at times even falling down from it! Enjoy a playful practice reminding us to stay steady and close to home when challenges arise (like this arm balance). As one progresses within their own experience of a particular asana (in range and in spaciousness of breath) they can continue to use the same practice. Four hand mudras are introduced both within the flow and in still meditation to enhance the experience of going within, of coming home. Anjali, Inner Heart Temple, Garuda, & Dhyani. Teacher Tool: Pinchamayurasana Hands-on assists. Emphasis on language to maintain the empty calm spacious feeling (especially when practicing inversions and or arm balances) Props: 1 or 2 yoga blocks. Filmed by Agathe Padovani @ifilmyoga.
