There is no instruction with this film, it was way too windy.
I thought it would be nice just for you to see one of our “home” beaches. Standing poses are presented here with a modified sun-salutation.
If you would like me to draw you some stick figures to go along with the video, pop me a message and I will email them back to you.
The ability to play with warrior 3 requires an awareness to the standing leg, a good strong action through the arms and an aligned spine.
I hope this little introduction to this stamina building pose will introduce these actions to you.
Please use a good solid wall for the arm balances.
Fly me to the moon
Let me sing among those stars
Let me see what spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars
In other words…
I had this song running through my head during this practice, I love this pose! When you get it correct it resonates through out the whole body. In fact I reckon old blue eyes would have loved it too.
Body…. look after yours, it is the only one you’ve got.
Please be true,
In other words
Please love you!
Strengthens the abdomen, ankles, thighs, buttocks, and para-spinal muscles
This practice is to help develop confidence in building your own home yoga routine.
Start with this simple sequence of standing poses.
All you need is a mat, 2 blocks and a wall or a belt (it is always handy to have a blanket nearby too).
Hold each asana to your own capacity and regard your body with utmost reverence.
Tree pose, Vrksasana, is a fun standing balance. We prepare by working the shoulders…slightly left field I know, but it will become clear as you move through the sequence.
It is worth persevering with this posture, (even if you never make the full foot to thigh action) because as we age, our sense of balance can deteriorate.
Have fun and move within your own capacity.
