These yoga essentials complement the practice of yoga, so that when combined, we gain the maximum benefits on offer. The corpse pose can start and finish a yoga session, so we explore this particular yoga posture in greater detail.
Although meditation is not essential to the practice of yoga, we have included it here because meditation is so beneficial in many aspects of yoga and in other areas of our lives. There are an array of ways in which meditation can be practiced, so we have included a number of the more widely used methods. We encourage you to try them all and adopt the style you favour the most.
We begin section 5. With an introduction to Sun Salutations. Sun Salutations (salute to the Sun) are a set of yoga postures, that are performed in a sequence one after the other and are directed by the breath. We have included three different types of Sun Salutations, each vary in difficulty level. To ensure that each individual pose is performed correctly within each Sun Salutation, we have separate instructions for each of the poses. We recommend practicing each pose individually, until you are comfortable performing each one of them, before attempting the Sun Salutations. Also included in section five is a warm up class, which should be taken before performing any yoga poses (asanas).
Section 6. Contains all your yoga classes and we begin with an introduction to these yoga classes.
We have crammed lots of classes into this section, beginning with a basic yoga class and finishing up with some extended classes. There are classes for seated poses, inversion poses (upside down), standing poses and classes with combinations of various poses.
