Pranayama is the Sanskrit word for breath work. In Ashtanga yoga, our focus is always on the breath. Pranayama can be done at any time, anywhere. There are lots of different types of breath exercises you can do, and different Apps to help guide you. This is one of the best practices you can do if you suffer with stress and anxiety, to help bring you back to a rest and restore state.

Upward facing dog or Urdhva Mukha Shvanasana is one of those poses that can cause injury over time if performed incorrectly. Remember first of all that if your lower back already has issues, stay with Cobra until you feel stronger. And when you’re ready for upward dog, engage those legs!! Only the hands and fronts of the feet are in contact with the floor. Knees up! 👍🏻

Trikonasana or triangle pose is one of the first standing postures in the sequence. Legs and arms straight for this one, keeping the front of the body facing the side of the mat, one shoulder stacked on top of the other. A mistake commonly made in this pose is rounding too much through the spine which brings the body forward, we want to keep the spine as long as possible as we come down. If that means the bottom hand rests (without pressure) on the shin rather than catching the big toe, that’s where you stop in the pose.

The bandhas are energetic locks in the body. They help to protect you as you move through your practice, and create heat within the body, controlling the movement of energy. Mula Bandha is the root lock and is located in the pelvis. Uddiyana Bandha is the abdominal lock. Jalandhara Bandha is located in the throat. Hasta Bandha is the hand lock, and is achieved by keeping the hands active. Pada Bandha is the foot lock and is achieved by keeping the feet active.

I will post pictures of some of the poses so you can see the names in Sanskrit. This is Chaturanga, not everyone’s favorite but I like it! The main points here is to keep the hips in line with the shoulders and keep the elbows at a 90 degree angle. That means elbows stacked over wrists and shoulders in line with elbows. Any underlying shoulder issues, this may be one to avoid and go straight to the floor. Dropping the knees on the mat can also make it easier to carry the weight.
