In Lesson 2, we look at basic pelvis anatomy, foot placement, and bearing weight on our hands and how all of these things apply to our yoga practice.
This lesson is designed to go along with Practice 2
I liked how Alana explained the pelvic bowl and how to find the specific landmarks to understand how it helps with our yoga poses. The language of yoga teachers to guide us into our poses and where are we in space. The compass is our pelvis. Awesome tutorial!
This lesson has brought so much reassurance for me. I have been doing Alana's Too Tight To Stretch series 1 alongside this Start Yoga course and have found bearing weight on my wrists almost impossible. I found doing plank on my elbows/forearms and downward dog using blocks to raise my hands up a bit so useful but was also worried that I was doing it all wrong. Watching this has helped me to understand that I'm in control and to follow the dictates of my body above all else. Thank you Alana
Thank you Karen. I'm so glad you found these suggestions and variations useful. The key is to customize each posture or shape so that if feels right to you (no pain, nerviness, compression, etc.). Please share any questions, comments, or insights that may arise as you move through this Course. Warmly, Alana
