This weekly practice is designed for people of all ages and levels of ability. This practice includes pranayama (yogic breathing exercises) to increase oxygenation of the body and as an opportunity to begin moving awareness towards inner space, or our internal environment. We then practice a series of movements first seated on the floor or in a chair. We progress through various classical yoga asanas done in standing, kneeling or reclined (either prone or supine) positions. For written and illustrated instructions on the therapeutic application of classical yoga, please see click on the PDF icon below.
The following is the description of yoga asana from the Classical Yoga Tradition:
ASANA is the refinement of the body.
Asana must have the dual qualities of alertness and relaxation.
These qualities can be achieved by recognizing and observing
the reactions of the body and the breath
to the various postures that comprise asana practice.
Once known, these reactions can be controlled step-by-step.
When these principles are correctly followed,
asana practice will help a person endure and even minimize
the external influences on the body
such as age, climate, diet and work.
