Yoga A lesson plan for Spring with Philip Bannister

Types of Poses

We are all different and we have different bodies and abilities . Let’s just assume you know nothing and let me walk your through some of the basic poses .

The important thing is to find the poses that. You feel give you the opportunity to grow. , develop confidence and that you enjoy.

Balancing Poses: Beginners' balances are an important way to build the core strength necessary for many of yoga's more advanced postures. Though balances may seem difficult at first, you will find that you can improve markedly with regular practice.

First steps though are to find your teacher and class . Initially I would recommend. Trying several venues, different styles of. Yoga and where possible vary times of day. If you have the flexibility to go to day time classes then use the oppprtunity . The age group of participants will vary but that’s all part of the diversity of yoga .

Standing Poses: Standing poses are usually the most strenuous for beginners. They are often done first in a yoga class to "build heat" and get you warmed up. In vinyasa/flow style yoga, standing poses are strung together to form long sequences. In hatha classes, the standing poses may be worked on individually with rest between each pose.

Backbends: Backbends are sometimes uncomfortable for beginners, so instructors typically start with gentle flexion and extension of the spine as an introduction. Since you rarely move like this in daily life, backbends are essential for spinal health and longevity.

Seated Poses: Seated stretches, which often focus on stretching the hips and hamstrings are usually done toward the end of a yoga class after the body is warm. Placing a folded blanket or a block under your butt is a good way to make yourself more comfortable in these postures.

Resting or Supine Poses: It's important to get to know your resting poses, especially child's pose, which you are encouraged to do whenever you need a break during a yoga session. These resting poses continue the hip and hamstring work of the seated poses, as well as providing gentle back bending, twisting, and inversion
