Grounding Practice: Sayta and finding truth in your practice
The theme of Sayta continues in this class, exploring the ways truthfulness/truth shows up on our mat and in our practice. This class will use props, including two blocks, a chair with a back, and the wall to help improve our alignment, deepen our experience, and enable us to hold poses longer (and safely) for optimal mind/body benefits. The practice begins with meditation, reflection, and prayer and the sequence includes Sun Salutation A (Surya Namaskar A) and low lunges (Anjaneyasana) as a warm-up. Following this will be Pyramid Pose variations (Parsvottanasana), Warrior 1 (Virabhadrasana 1), Standing Balance One Leg Raised Pose (Utthita Eka Padasana), Warrior 3 (Virabhadrasana 3), Camel Pose (Ustrasana), Intense Stretch of the Dorsal Pose (Paschimottanasana), Seated Twist (Ardha Matsyendrasana), Corpse Pose (Savasana), Meditation and a prayer of gratitude.
