Spokane Men’s Yoga Gathering — Balance — 2019-09-08

6 to 8pm Sunday 8 September 2019

Slow, patient, deliberate work learning to feel our way into better balance.

Don’t drink too much coffee.

I developed a new chain as our goal for the gathering.

All poses with arms in namaskarasana:

Mountain – Half Forward Fold – Mountain
Tree
Mountain – Half Forward Fold – Mountain

Wide Leg Stance – Wide Leg Forward Fold – Wide Leg Stance
Warrior 2
Wide Leg Stance – Wide Leg Forward Fold – Wide Leg Stance

Pattern:
A – B – A
C
A – B – A

D – E – D
F
D – E – D

Then repeat in the other direction as both Tree and Warrior 2 (C & F) are unilateral.

No mat needed.

Spokane Men’s Yoga Gathering — Flow, Pause, & Meditation — 2019-08-11

The next Spokane Men’s Yoga Gathering will be on Sunday 11th of August from 6 to 8pm.

We will work on flowing sequences of yoga to add to your regular yoga practice.

We will start with Ken’s vinyasa sequence that we have used for warm up.

  • Ken’s vinyasa sequence
    • pause on half fold and seated chair
  • Warrior 2 sequence
  • Surya Namaskara – once or twice
  • Plank, staff, up dog, half dog sequence – a middle of Surya Namaskar

In the middle of flow, we will each pause in positions that feel most beneficial.

In the middle of the gathering we will pause for meditation. How does yoga feel different after meditation?

On a day when you can do only five minutes, one of these sequences will benefit.
