Hatha Yoga Tip

Yoga @ HOME SEQUENCES – All Levels

Benefits of a Yoga @ Home sequence:

  • A daily check-in with the body/mind connection through an asana practice leads to healthier lifestyle
  • Yoga @ Home sequences allow you to easily add your asanas into your daily life
  • A daily practice opens the body and keeps it and the mind clear and refreshed to meet the day
  • Doing a yoga practice at home develops inner awareness and the witness
  • Doing a yoga practice at home lifts the energy of your home
  • Doing a yoga practice at home can ensure you practice everyday if you are unable to reach the yoga studio

In the back of the book “Yoga: Your Home Practice Companion” (p170) are suggested practice sequences offering routines for beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. At each level there is a 20-, 40- and 60-minute sequence. Each posture has a repetition or time frame on which to hold the posture. Begin and end your chosen sequence in corpse pose. At the top of each level’s sequence a few suggested relaxation postures are offered. Create a space at home the size of your yoga mat plus enough room to stretch both arms out to the sides. Begin to create this space as a sanctuary of tranquility, leaving the pace solely for yoga asanas and meditation. Soon it will have the energy that you happily retreat to each day.

Do not be deceived by the charm of external objects. They are an illusion. – Sri Swami Sivananda

MAHATMYA – greatness; glorious acts; of glories

The Devi-Mahatmya which, in a majestic poetry in Sanskrit, describes the Epic of the march of the human soul to its destination, The realization of this freedom is the dramatic aspect of the great worship of the Divine Mother during the nine days of Navaratri.

The Gītā Māhātmyam sings the divine glories of Śrīmad Bhagavad. This verse is recited at the conclusion of the daily reading of the Bhagavad Gita.

Worldly life is Apurna (incomplete). It is finite, imperfect, limited. It is full of weaknesses, pains, sorrows, disease. – Sri Swami Sivananda
