Interweaving Shoulder & Arm awareness with strengthening Standing Poses.
Welcome to the 1st class of Intermediate Yoga Module A! I’m so happy to finally be sharing this with you. As most of you know, this Module is a continuation of Beginners Yoga Module A & B and after all that hard work we’ve now graduated to the next level! The Training Level! 🌟 This Training will last 1 year. Instead of a new class each week, we now have a new Training Schedule every 6 weeks. We’ve tilled the soil and now we are planting and watering and nurturing. This is the next stage of making the practice and discipline our own, so that it really takes root and blossoms. There are days when we won’t want to practice and days when everything flows. Trying to establish a schedule regardless of emotional mind-states is key. I know it’s challenging but it’s also life-changing! The INSTRUCTIONS on how to use this Module are written BELOW. If anything is unclear or if you have any questions please feel free to message me here. I’m here for you as much as possible! Shared with joy! 🌼 X Cat.
At the bottom of this page there is a section titled SEQUENCE for CLASS A. My gift to you. A recipe of asanas. The Practice Sequence. Each ensuing class and module will have its own unique sequence. Please Copy, Paste & Print. Practice from them, take notes on them, create a file and keep forever. 💖 You’ll also see that each pose has times written next to it: 30 sec, 1 min. etc. In the Yoga world these are called Timings. Each pose has its ideal timing in relationship to others. When practicing with respect of Timings the practice is 100% energetically optimised. To make the most out of this training it’s advisable to follow these timings. The beauty about this is that you can adapt the practice according to your needs. For instance – if time is short choose 30 sec. per pose. And when there is more time choose 1 min. Some poses only have one time option. For instance: Supta Virasana 3 min. Sirsasana 3 min. etc. Whilst it may initially be challenging to hold them that long, with practice the stamina and strength will come.
