Thank you for that reply! You were right. I had too many poses! Especially for a first class where I spent some time on each poses considering the body and potential use of props. In the end we did Butterfly 1/2 butterfly Shoelace (with a twist, but next week I will try a side bend) Caterpillar Then...

I have been teaching a yin yang class for a while.
I find splitting the class into 1/2 yang followed by 1/2 yin works best.

When I tried the other way my class didn't want to start moving around after getting into the yin mindset.

Why practice yoga

The second yoga sutra, yoga is the stilling of the fluctuations of the mind, explains it all for me. For many years I was deeply unhappy and exercised to try to escape the mean voice in my head. It never worked. I could not run away from myself. In yoga, I use my body to hold my attention and I have...

Si joint pain and twisting

Hi there I have managed to shift my si joint a bit during a ashtanga practice. In reading about this I came across a good article by Judith Lassiter explaining si joint pain in yoga. In poses like 1/2 butterfly, my understanding is she recommends allowing the pelvis to twist with the upper body over...

another sequence

I have been teaching a while longer. This is my latest class. The class seems to like it. I have also done you legs up the wall class a few times when we are very small. What would be your next "level" to this? We hold the postures for 3 minutes. The class is 90 minutes. We start with some general b...

I tried the gate pose and you were right. I took a little more balance than anticipated, and our knees got sore in my sequence.

It went ok, but this week I am going to add bananasana and remove gate.

Thank you for your response! I am learning a lot from your website.

Input on sequence

Hi there I am a newer yoga teacher. I have been teaching a weekly 90 minute yin class for about 3 months. I keep it very simple. It is usually 8-10 ladies. There are a number of them with knee issues. Most are runners. I am looking to try a few different things. I do a lot of the classes on the wall...
