The following theme can be used either for your own personal practice, or for your group classes or one ones that you are teaching. Everything below is just a guide based on my thoughts and experiences in the moment. Feel free to change anything to better suit your teaching/practice style or so that it feels more authentic to you and your own teaching voice. Namasté
Theme: New Beginnings
Sutra 1:1 Now the Exposition of Yoga Begins
Physical Focus: Mix things up with different variations of the regular poses you teach. Maybe eagle arms with Warrior 1 or Cow Faced Arms (Tricep Stretch) in Warrior 2. A great opportunity to try some new poses as well. This class doesn’t need to be challenging to make it’s mark, but you know your class best 🙂
Pranayama: Alternate Nostril breath
Yama/Niyama: Saucha – purity, space clearing
Chakra: 6th Chakra – third eye, intuition
Mudra: Contemplation, hands in lap palms up. Left hand under right
Om Gum Ganapatayei Namaha
This is the Ganesha mantra. Ganesha is known as the remover of obstacles but he also represents new beginnings and the opportunity for a clean start.
With the new school year, a perfect time to reset and start a fresh.
