(waves lapping) Hi. Thanks for showing up here. This is season two of Grounded Joy. And a lot of these practices come from the Vijnana Yoga manual. That manual was put together by one of my teachers.
Her name is Orit Sen-Gupta and she lives in Jerusalem and has a yoga school there. I love these practices. They're beautiful because they go deeply into one thing. And the way the manual is is there's a set practice foe every day of the week. So, you kind of alternate back bending and then forward folding and then hand balancing.
And then repeat. I hope you like them as much as I do. We play in this with the polarity of finding ease and strength. And I talk about that a lot. They're definitely more advanced practices.
But I hesitate to use that word, advanced, because even the simplest thing, like just sitting, can be the most advanced thing but some of these practices are showing a level of commitment that is required for some of the deeper hip openings perhaps. Or maybe some of the inversions. Even if you don't consider yourself advanced please join me. Because you can learn a lot by watching. There are so many modifications.
And sometimes it's nice to have a challenge. See you in there. Namaste.
