Restorative Poses In 45 Minutes – Weekly Intermediate Class 70

Focus: This weeks class puts some of the main Iyengar Yoga restorative poses into a sequence that is completed within 45 minutes. It contains classic chest opening poses like setu bandha sarvangasana, and rejuvenating inversions such as viparita karani. Breath awareness is featured in an upright cross leg position, and then a chest opening version of savasana completes the class.

The class also covers the basics of prop use in restorative yoga. The time duration of the class is long enough to bring about change in terms of reducing stress levels, but short enough to fit into a busy schedule. It will suit newer students as well as more experienced practitioners.

Key Poses: Setu bandha sarvangasana, viparita dandasana, viparita karani, savasana

Equipment: Mat, chair, bolster, 3 blankets, 2 blocks, belt

Level: Intermediate

    The first couple of times I did this class I had a hard time dealing with the props, but I did it again today and I was so relaxed that my mind seemed to be floating, like a happy cloud. I’m not sure how else to describe it.

    It is always a good idea to take some time to slow down and focus inwards. Glad you enjoyed the class.
