Hi! Here is a beginner sequence to do at home from IYNAUS. Its great for all levels. If your a beginner grab a kitchen chair and some blankets for the harder poses. Remember to take it slow and easy and focus on your breath. Try to do the poses from softness of your breath and not from the hardness of the mind. Also have fun and don't judge your self.

Here are seven restorative Iyengar Yoga sequences to help support the immune system and help calm the mind. If you do not practice inversions; simply omit these Asanas. Included is a menstrual sequence and a men's restorative sequence- these two sequences can be practiced by everyone. Thanks to the world wide Iyengar community for making these sequences available

'In Sadhana, by chance you get a pain, you blame the teacher and begin to dislike him; if you get pleasure you think the pleasure giving teacher is a right teacher. If I had decided about my guru this way, then perhaps I would not have reached my present state and status. Even in that painful state I tried to live with his commands and demands and proceeded. I reflected the play of pain and pleasure on my mind and assimilated through my intelligence.'

Mysore Yoga Traditions Film
Sri TRS Sharma was indeed the boy who Krishnamacharya was standing on top on in Kapotasana in the famous Mysore yoga demonstration photo! Now in his late 80s Mr. Sharma has a razor sharp mind and can recall in great detail the teaching methodology of Krishnamacharya and the yoga which he pioneered in those early days. As an Etymologist and great lover of all spiritual literature, Mr. Sharma is a striking example of the academic brilliance and concise articulation of yoga that Mysore has to share with the world! Not only does he speak in detail about the early days of the yogasana revival in Mysore but he shares the essence of what yoga means to him and gives real insight into how the ancient philosophy of yoga relates to our modern paradigm. If you are interested in the history of Vinyasa Yoga and what yoga means to someone who was there at the time, this short video will be inspiring and insightful!
If you would like to study directly with the yogis and scholars of Mysore check out the MYT Retreat and Conference February 28-March 9!

Amazing documentary done long ago on Yoga. Carefully listen to the commentary, one of the best scripts written on Yoga.
The Body Mechanic
Biomechanically the pelvis and shoulder are linked. This is what is referred to as a Myofascial sling.
The hamstrings starting from the tibia then insert into the Ischial tuberosity. This then continues along as the Sacro-tuberous ligament and then through the thoraco-Lumbar fascia. This then continues to the Latissimus dorsi which then inserts into the opposite scapula and humerus.
Therefore your Hamstrings actually attach to your arms!!!
So....if there is tension through this sling caused from a rotated pelvis, then the infraspinatus (a muscle on the scapula) can go into spasm and so prevents the biomechanical function of the shoulder. This is a common cause of shoulder injuries.
In order to reduce risk of shoulder injuries the pelvis must be in good biomechanical shape.
Therefore if you have shoulder pain, then you will need to have your pelvis assessed.
I'm really not going crazy if I assess your pelvis before looking at your shoulder!

An animation showing the moving parts of the Respiratory System.
The Lungs are different from one another. The right consists of three lobes, Superior, Middle, and Inferior, while the left only has two, the Superior and Inferior.
The Lungs are encased by the Pleura, a membrane surface that lubricates the lungs movement while we breath.
The Diaphragm, a muscle that helps pump air into and out of the lungs. As it contracts (moves down), the air is sucked in, as it relaxes, the air is pushed out.

As AUM has 3 letters, which stand for generation, continuation and culmination in words or actions, Asana too has 3 movements:
A is going in position,
U is stabilizing and staying in the asana, and
M is coming out of the position.
In this way, an asana mentally expresses the “pranava mantra of āum, without uttering it.

“We are always looking outward, listening to our teachers who come with their own problems and limitations and we ignore the most supreme teacher within ourselves. The only way to evolve, to progress, to truly practice, is to listen to our inner teacher." Prashantji Iyengar
ASK RICHARD AND MARY: "Should mula bandha be active for entire practice? I feel I have been engaging it for most of the postures but I am not sure if that is correct and/or safe (I have read that it may not be ideal for women)? Many of the yoga classes I have taken do not specify this. Is "sucking in the belly" or "belly into the spine" the same thing as activating it?"

Professor T. Krishnamacharya (1888 - 1989)
The source scholar of modern Yoga. He was teacher to B.K.S. Iyengar, Pattabhi Jois, and his own son, T.K.V. Desikachar. His scholarship brought forth Yoga from the Great Tradition, making it available in our modern context. He clarified "what is yoga," and more importantly, how does any individual practice and make use of Yoga according to their unique individual needs, body type, age, health, lifestyle and cultural background. Regretfully, Krishnamacharya’s principles of yoga have been left out of the modern styles of yoga popularized around the world. The yoga principles from Krishnamacharya need to be included in the styles of yoga that derived from him. Then, we have the full spectrum of practice. Then, your yoga is entirely your own, efficient, powerful and safe. The hallmark of Krishnamacharya's work is that there is a right yoga for every person no matter who you are. "If you can breath, you can do yoga!" Krishnamacharya is of our own time.
