  • Practice and learn the Ujjayi pranayama video

  • Topic: Neutralizing poses. Right order? Put it into practice by creating your own sequences! 

  • Meditation: Breath Awareness Meditation



Take a picture of yourself in a forward bend! Are you in spinal flexion or is your back straight? Are your knees bent, straight, or hyperextended? How do your hamstrings and lower back feel? 

What movements/activities in life require us to be in a forward bend position (hip flexion)? For example, sitting down in any manner we are in hip flexion. This means all activities in a sitting type of position such as biking, paddling, driving... What else can you think of?

Can you think of any other category of position (backbends, twists, inversions, balance) that we are in a lot?
