This is an Iyengar Yoga Sequence for Beginners. @Yoga with Lin and Leo have changed the way we work due to the Covid-19 situation. We hope to be posting more frequently, but we will be teaching individually.
This yoga sequence, taught by Leo, is a shortened version of one of the virtual classes we are teaching at the Maidstone Yoga Centre, which is closed during this outbreak of Coronavirus. If you would like access to the full class, CLICK THIS LINK TO REGISTER AT THE CENTRE. https://www.iyengar-yoga.co.uk/ YOUR FIRST CLASS IS FREE and if you use the code “April-online”, when booking, you will be eligible for 25% off any of our virtual classes throughout April 2020. We have a Zoom discussion for those who want to join us.
This sequence is Beginners yoga, (for those who know the basics of the subject) but we will also be posting Complete Beginners Yoga routines, (for those who are new to the subject), Improvers classes, (for those who are working on their inversions and deepening their practice), and short Intermediate seqeunces, (for those who have an established, mature practice and are ready to tackle some of the more challenging poses).
This sequence comprises the following poses:
Parvatasana in Tadasana – Mountain pose
Prasarita Padottanasana – WIde legged forward bend
Parighasana – Gate Pose
Adho Mukha Svanasana – Dog Head Down
Urdhva Mukha Svanasana – Dog Head Up
Adho Mukha Virasana – Forward Bending Hero Pose
Viparita Karani – Legs Up the wall
Sukhasana – SImple Cross Legs
You just need your mat for this practice but you may also need a wall to balance against.
If you find any of the poses difficult, you can look the poses up in our Yoga Pose Directory, which we are adding to all the time.These tutorials will teach the poses in more detail and sometimes with extra props.
