Shelley Williams this practice "Warrior" was wildly wonderful and freeing! I loved how at the end of the sequence as we rested in shavasana you quoted from Mr.Iyengar "Body is your Bow, Breath is your arrow, and The Soul is the Target!" Thank you! Peace and Blessings!
Tracy Right on! Such a great quote, yes?! So glad you liked this one, its a lil different from the rest (but that's what I love about it ;). Thanks for your enthusiasm!

I was amazed that navasana was easy for me! Just in a few classes! So amazed. That's genius building of the sequences)

And I've never enjoyed core work so much. In the 6th day did it twice and added one to yesterday's class! Question about udiyana bangha in the exercise with legs up and down while we lay: do we try to keep it when our legs go down?

Warrior stance question :
If I understood you correctly we position pelvis and chest towards the front of the mat (the shorter edge, where our front knee is looking). Right? But I saw you having them (especially the chest) face the camera aka the longer edge of the mat. I'm confused.

Thank you πŸ’—πŸ™πŸΌπŸ’œ
Gabriel You are most welcome :)
Nadia Wonderful! Your core is getting stroooong! Engage uddyhana bandha lightly on the exhale, when legs are rising back upward. It is a "hugging" in of the transverse abdomens to stabilize core, rather than a full uddhyana bandha suction that you would perform during straight (seated) pranayama practice.... ~ Warrior Stance: you are talking about Warrior 2, yes? IN that case, hips are very subtley/ slightly angled towards front corner of mat, while ribcage and chest are on the 180 line, facing long edge of mat.
