What differentiates a good yoga sequence, from a great one?
We're looking at and dissecting in practice three varitaions on common vinyasa sequences, suryanamascar, chandranamascar and a typical vinyasa warrior flow. In our exploration we'll see their effects on the breath, bandha, muscular skeletal and nervous systems.
This will lead to great insights into the importance of the actions and how one can modify for injuries and individuals with special conditions to achieve a similar effect and group inclusivity.

WHAT makes assisting posture therapeutic and what makes it dangerous
WHEN to cue breath, and the pitfalls of pranayama *
WHY “shoulders down and back” can be THE LEAST effective cue in certain situations
HOW “draw the naval into the spine“ is an often ineffective way to stabilise **
Do you want to truly understand why yoga postures can be so effective at bringing about a sense of well being?
It’s time and you deserve a thorough reasoning and understanding of how to incorporate the philosophy of yoga into movement.
Many people practice Haha yoga (like Ashtanga vinyasa) or Thatha yoga (like yin), but it’s important to understand that the effect is instantaneously blissful with the informed approach to movement that includes how to relax and exercise the body at the same time. With this way of practice, the mind wanders less and you have a much reduced risk of injury or even muscular soreness afterwards and the next day.
