Moon Flow

Vinyasa Flow | By Dice Iida-Klein on Sep 19 2012
This flow is all about the Moon! We start off with a few seated stretches to lengthen the hamstrings and open the hips, then we find Chandra Namaskar (also known as Surya Namaskar C) and end up running through fun variations in and out of ardha chandrasana (half moon pose) and parivrtta ardha chandrasana (revolved half moon). Along the way we find a few different variations of handstand and arm balances. A mild backbend from our bellies helps to top off this odd, but fun practice. Enjoy my fellow yogis!

    Great class, Dice. I was wondering if you have any advise for getting your knees to stay in your armpits when doing crow? I always slip..........
    • Dice Iida-Klein     Feb 22nd, 2013
      Try lifting your heels as high as possible. Think heels to glutes and also, try lifting your thighs into your chest. This will make the posture more about the core and less about the friction of your knees against your arms. I hope that helps!

    So much fun! Scoring a pose or not (yes, several 'nots':) it was still a blast! Thank you Dice. Great ways to work glute medius for greater stability.
    • Dice Iida-Klein     Feb 22nd, 2013
      You got the best and right attitude Sheila! Doesn't matter if you can do the pose. Just have fun trying :)
