Home Practice Tips

Beginning a home practice is the best way to prolong the work you have done in class. Coming to class 2-3 times a week is ideal and adding in practice at home is extremely beneficial for your progression.  ••• This week's home practice pose.  Ardha Uttanasana. Practice this asana twice each day. Hold for 30 seconds each time.  This pose can be practiced pretty much anywhere. If you don't have a counter-top or table to use, place your finger-tips on a wall instead. It works your legs, arms and creates excellent mobility in the spine.  Benefits: Increases flexibility in the front chest and armpit area. Increases strength in the back chest and shoulders. Relieves tension in shoulders and back. Rejuvenates spinal muscles. Increases lung capacity. Lengthens hamstrings. Strengths quadriceps.  Always seek advice from a certified Iyengar yoga teacher. Please email us if you have questions: deanna@calgaryiyengaryoga.com
