Focus: This week our advanced class features yoga poses for strength and resilience. These poses can be a good starting point if you are looking to harness and focus a sense of stability and determination. There can be times when you might have multiple commitments and challenges and might not feel like practicing. When I first started learning yoga my teacher at the time said that the difficult thing is getting on the mat, and then the rest will follow. This simple advice has always been constant for me even when things are in flux or there are new challenges to overcome. New insights come or don’t come on good days and bad days. The poses seem to have their own pace and operate on their own time in an unconditional way. The sequence includes poses that challenge and strengthen on both a physical and mental level.
Key Poses: Adho mukha vrksasana, chaturanga dandasana, bakasana, purvottanasana, urdhva dhanurasana.
Equipment: Mat, chair, bolster, 2 blankets, 2 blocks, belt.
