Post Thanksgiving Digestion Class
Friday, November 28
We all have much to be thankful for living in the Woodstock area. I hope you add to your list how special it is that we are able to freely practice yoga and to spend time on the spiritual path. This is one of the greatest blessings in life.
Have a great holiday, and I look forward to seeing you in this year’s
Post Thanksgiving Digestion Class.
This class is open to all levels and students of all styles of yoga. But please, no absolute beginners or major injuries for this class. It will be moving too fast for your safety.
The Apana Prana is the main downward energy of the body. In most yoga classes the postures are done to stimulate the upward flow of Prana to lead towards Enlightenment. Unless the downward Apana Vayu is moving correctly, congestion, blockages, sluggishness, constipation, and dullness will result.
It’s not: “You are what you eat.”
It’s: “You are what you don’t poop out!”
After a feasting holiday, it is good to work on asanas to stimulate this downward flow. This will be a STRONG yoga class. Besides stimulating the Apana Vayu Prana, we will work to stimulate the Agni Gastric Fire. Please let me know before class if you are having your period. Some abdominal asanas are not appropriate during menstruation. Alternate postures will be offered for you, so don’t let that be an excuse not to come.
We will work on the following:
- kriyas to stimulate digestion and elimination
- asanas to stimulate digestion and elimination
- jumpings in the various asanas and vinyasana
- twists, compressions, and stretches to the abdomen
- a long expansive restorative pose to relax the abdomen and belly at the end
Regular 2 hour students can use their class card to pay the discounted $18 price. If you have a 1 1/2 hour card add $4. New or drop-in students pay $20. No need to register in advance. Please show up by 10:45 to sign-in so we can start on time.
