Opening up your side body

Opening up your side body - practising functionally

75:25

Opening up your side body - practising functionally

Do you want to practice functionally and therapeutically? This class starts with a short talk in which José explains how to practice yoga poses in a functional way, meaning: feeling the purpose of a pose instead of copying a picture of a pose. As each pose stimulates different areas of your body, the idea is to practice the pose in such a way you will experience the stimulated area while performing it; getting its therapeutic benefits. In this Yin session you will stimulate the lateral side of your body, opening up your inner and outer thighs, hips, bum, lateral sides of your torso and shoulders, while doing various side-bends. In the sides of our bodies we tend to hold a lot of tension, due to our very yang-ish lifestyle. Emotions like irritation can be released during this practice, making you calm in the end. The focus of this class is directed breathing. The breath affects every cell in the body, so when you combine bringing attention to the breath and directing it to a specific region, the energy moving towards a certain area is doubly increased. This session starts and finishes with meditation, and again, various options for poses are given. You might also like to practise José's accompanying class: Opening up your front body.
Props: blanket, pillow, blocks, belt.

Going forward from the sides

This class is the third in a series of classes on how by accessing the sides of the body we can improve our asana practice. Have you ever heard a teacher say "find a backbend in your forward bend" and never really knew what they meant? Then this is your class! By creating extra space in the side body, supporting and opening the chest and creating a backbend in the thoracic spine, we will incorporate these actions into our forward bends. Hopefully, you'll be able to find that backbend folding forward now.

A Yin shorty

In this short Yin session you quickly get rid of tensions in the back, lateral side of your body and the hips. The simple poses will calm your nervous system, pacify your breath and release stiffness. Great for those who build up tension in the back and hips. It can be done in the morning after waking up or any other time you need a quick fix.

Vashistasana / Side plank Class

Vashistasana, sometimes called side plank pose, is a challenging and fun pose that requires all of our intention, focus and effort to come together in one moment. This class will introduce the modified versions of Vashistasana, gradually building up to the full expression of the pose. With lots of instructions on the alignment, you can determine what variation of the pose works best for you and allow you to build up to the next pose when you are ready. With Surya Namaskar, Virabhadrasana II, Trikonasana and Ardha Chandrasana

Yamuna side line

This sequence works the whole sideline from the I.T. band right up into the shoulder and arm. Do this sequence after doing the legs and finish with the spine for an amazing Yamuna workout. The side line sequence brings everything together and you will feel a big difference from one side to the other after doing this. Wonderful as a pre-yoga practice.
