Duration: 1 hr 13 minutes
Emphasis: The sequences in this general class will prepare you for Eagle Pose (Garudasana) with poses that stretch the shoulders, the arms and the upper back. There's also bridge pose, supported shoulderstand and a twist to round off the practice before Savasana.
Props needed: Two blocks, a blanket and a yoga belt or tie from a bathrobe.
Mat direction: Short edge of the mat facing the screen might be the best orientation.
Before participating it is important that you read the disclaimer and the tips below to get the most benefit from your class:
Make sure you have a clear space around your mat and are wearing stretchy, comfortable clothes so you can move easily.
Move within your range of movement, never forcing or straining. This is really important. Remember, you are trying to create ease and freedom within your body – it’s not a competition.
Don’t practice if you are feeling unwell or have an injury and consult your doctor before starting if you have a medical condition or are pregnant.
Make sure to leave at least 1.5 hours between eating a meal and practising yoga. Doing any exercise on a full stomach is not good for your digestion and might make you feel uncomfortable or nauseous.
Breathe deeply, relax and enjoy your yoga.
