Class Theme: New Beginnings

The following theme can be used either for your own personal practice, or for your group classes or one ones that you are teaching. Everything below is just a guide based on my thoughts and experiences in the moment. Feel free to change anything to better suit your teaching/practice style or so that it feels more authentic to you and your own teaching voice. Namasté

Theme: New Beginnings

Sutra 1:1 Now the Exposition of Yoga Begins

Physical Focus: Mix things up with different variations of the regular poses you teach. Maybe eagle arms with Warrior 1 or Cow Faced Arms (Tricep Stretch) in Warrior 2. A great opportunity to try some new poses as well. This class doesn’t need to be challenging to make it’s mark, but you know your class best 🙂

Pranayama: Alternate Nostril breath

Yama/Niyama: Saucha – purity, space clearing

Chakra: 6th Chakra – third eye, intuition

Mudra: Contemplation, hands in lap palms up. Left hand under right

Mantra:

Om Gum Ganapatayei Namaha

This is the Ganesha mantra. Ganesha is known as the remover of obstacles but he also represents new beginnings and the opportunity for a clean start. 

Additional Notes:

With the new school year, a perfect time to reset and start a fresh.
