Yoga with Caroline is back week commencing 13th July – check out my classes for more details of when you’ll find me on the mat.
Meantime, why not keep up the practice by taking to your mat in your own time in your own home or if you practice at work, keep to your regular worktime slot. I promise it will be time worth spent, even if it’s only ten minutes flowing through the below sequence, just by breathing and moving, you’re going to feel the benefits. Practicing in your own time really allows you to tune in and go deeper as you start to listen to yourself more, trust yourself more and notice what feels good and what doesn’t.
The Sun A and B sequences are as taught to me by my teacher Claire Missingham in London.
In Sun B – 2 refers to warrior I or Virabhadrasana I, 3 = warrior 2 or Virabhadrasana II and 4 = reverse warrior or viparita-virabhadrasana and 5 is just windmilling your hands down either side of your front foot.
I’ve added some more sequences below – the idea being that depending on time, mood and energy levels, you could do the full flow, or pick and choose one from each of the three different sections. Your practice, your choice. These sequences are merely to give you some ideas, if your body starts to take you off into different poses, listen and follow, be intuitive and go with what feels good for you.
If you are looking for ways to start a home practice but you’re not sure if you’re doing things right – watch this space as I’m currently working on a “Cultivating a Home Practice” half day workshop coming up this September in conjunction with the lovely Nichola Veitch. We’ll be sharing our tips and techniques to get you confident and ready to rock your asana at home! Dates and venue to be confirmed.
