A Gentle Yoga Routine

Posted by terrepruitt on March 16, 2020

So dang it!  We are in a lock down.  The county has directed everyone to stay home.  So that means no classes.  No Yin Yoga, no gentle yoga, no Nia, and no stretch.  Hopefully this will really “flatten the curve” as they are saying and keep this from getting worse.  I know that this is difficult.  I am just going to share a yoga routine here to perhaps motivate someone into moving.  I created it with my students in mind.  So I did not add a lot of instruction.  Each pose does not have a “how to”, some of them just have some of the cues I give during class.  The minimal cues are to help spark their memory so they can do the pose.  I know many people need or want pictures, but here is what we have for now.

Anyone is encouraged to contact me if you have questions regarding this little routine.  As I said, it was created with my students in mind and they should understand it because it is standard stuff we do all the time.

It should take about an hour, including 10 minutes of shavasana.  The poses are to be held either four breaths (**) or three (*).  Some of the poses are in a sequence done more than once.

Again, if you want to do it and have questions just ask.

    Thanks. I’m taking yoga teacher training soon, online thank goodness, and it’s good to see how others write sequencing. I teach a half hour class at work and use my own abbreviations but this gives me more ideas.

    • Ha, this isn’t what it looks like when I have my notes. This is for my students. They wouldn’t have understood it at all if it was my routine notes. Ha. Good luck with your teacher training.
