Master Warrior III

Vinyasa Flow | By Jo Tastula on Jul 30 2012
Just like falling asleep, the moment we fall into meditation is magical.  Through simple awareness and sustained focus, over time meditation can become a real tangible experience in the vinyasa flow practice.  This practice focuses on the internal leg action which is key to mastering our peak pose notorious warrior 3 (virabhadrasana 3).  We practice the action in sun salutations with crescent (surya namaskara) and particularly when raising a leg from down dog to step through.  Free time at the end of the class for either backbends, inversions or hip openers.  Lots of time to fall into a deep savasana also!

  • Victoria Molnar     Aug 17th, 2012
    Perhaps my favorite Jo class. Although I agree with Autumn--I liked it so much, I would have liked to repeat. Loved the music too--I could finally hear it! I used to live in SoCal and it's hard to find that LA style of vinyasa flow on the East coast. Thank heavens for yogaglo!
    • Jo Tastula     Aug 24th, 2012
      Inspired by yourself and Autumn... I've scheduled to do a 90 min version of this class. So THANK YOU for your feedback. It helps me so much when creating a curriculum. xo

  • Judith Levine     Aug 2nd, 2012
    I love your classes, Jo, but I couldn't do this one because the music was so loud and distracting. usually, you turn it down. Kindly do in future.
    namaste,
    Judith
    • Jo Tastula     Aug 8th, 2012
      Hi Judith, thanks for bringing this to my attention. Sometimes they can adjust the music in the control room so I'll email them and see what's possible. Namaste ~

    This was so wonderful. You guided me to a very peaceful place in my practice. Sequencing was very smooth yet challenging.

    What a lovely class! I loved the flow and sequence. Wish it was a 90 min class so that I can enjoy this moment longer! :D
    • Jo Tastula     Aug 8th, 2012
      Hi Young-Ju, I just commented to Autumn (who commented just before you) that I'll work on a longer version of this for you. x
  • Autumn Jordan     Jul 30th, 2012
    Such a strong sequence, but I wish we had repeated it just one more time to really deepen it. I loved the transitions and being able to choose how to end the class. Thank you and namaste Jo! :)
    • Jo Tastula     Aug 8th, 2012
      You are a strong yogini Autumn!! Thanks for your feedback! I'll work on a longer version of this for you.
