Teaching Yoga Basics

A week ago today, I taught Yoga Basics for Alana. Kira came along and observed!! Which makes me pretty much an official yoga teacher now. :)

I can see how much practice I need to get to where I'd like to be, but I try to enjoy the onrush of learning that happens every time I teach. My favorite part is the satisfaction of taking care of people.

I'll be teaching Yoga for Recovery this Saturday and Restorative Yoga on Tuesday. Please come! Here's the schedule...

Restorative Heart Opener on Bolster
Savasana without props, feel the difference
Windshield Wipers
Apanasana with block under sacrum
Hamstring stretch with block under sacrum (I think I need to try this with a block and a blanket because the block starts to feel so hard and uncomfortable after a while)
Seated side seaweed stretching (it's a tongue twister!)
Plank to Down Dog to Belly
Demo of Plank to Down Dog emphasizing the press ("Press all the way to China. Hi Sarah!")
Repeat Plank to Down Dog
Baby Cobra
Extended Child's
Tadasana with Ujjayi Breath
Easy High Lunge Salute with Blocks
Easy Salute with Blocks: high and low lunge
Hug knees to chest, wobble
Eye of the Needle Hip Opener
Easy supine twist
Legs up the wall
