Be Injury Free

Hatha | By Steven Espinosa on Feb 09 2012
Sometimes in yoga we can push or force ourselves to the point of injury. This practice reminds us to move in a mindful and conscious way to create an engaging yet safe environment and stay injury free! 

Strong yet fun Level 1-2 with a steady opening warm up leading into an energetic Standing Pose series including Warrior 2, Extended Side Angle, Triangle and Half Moon Pose. Followed by Hip and Thigh stretch in Pigeon Pose, Standing Leg Balance in Tree and Arm Balance with Crow. Concludes with Back Bends in Bridge and/or Upward Facing Bow and brief rest in Corpse Pose.

    Wouldn't mind so much if it wasn't on our hallowed BBC! http://news.bbc.co.uk/today/hi/today/newsid_9693000/9693928.stm

    OMG. That is so funny, Denyse! Thank you for sharing. Very happy you enjoyed the class. Beware of Savasana! LOL. Steven.

    Very much enjoyed your class as ever. The "Does Yoga Wreck Your Body?" debate has crossed the Atlantic and become "Will Yoga Kill You?" We're wondering if Savasana (corpse pose over here) is safe! LOL :)

    Hi Carol. Thank you for your sweet words. When you say "practicing with you" it makes me very happy. Because it means you feel like you are in the room with us. Which is one of the beautiful things about YogaGlo! Keep up the great work and have a wonderful day! Steven.

    Hey Kayla! That is so cool! Crow pose is a hard! So it makes me extra happy to know that the engagement of your hands helped you in the pose. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and have a sweet day! Steven.

    This practice certainly warmed me on this very, very cold morning in London. Thanks, Steven.

    I loved this. I felt strong and stable throughout the entire class thanks to your great attention to detail, I really needed the "power of the hands" reminders and I was finally able to get into crow pose comfortably! Thank you thank you.

    hey, this class came just at the very moment I needed it. I've always been struggling between pushing myself while taking care of not straining myself and this is an important lesson I need to learn - my physical therapist says so, too ;-). will look into more of your classes, steven, love your approach. namaste!

    Hello Dar! Thanks so much for your wonderful comments. It makes me happy that you appreciate the mindful attention to detail. I am sure you are a much loved teacher yourself. And yes, I think that is a great idea to do a segment for those older and less mobile. Thanks for the suggestion! Have a great day! Steven.
