 Crow Pose: A New Approach

This demonstration was taken from The Elements of Mastery online immersion. The Key points here are that activating the adductor muscles (muscles of the inner thighs) significantly help to activate the deep core muscles. Instead of placing the knees in the armpits the knees go outside. The shins are now on the shelf of the upper arm – this does require a good deal of hip flexibility, so this may not come easy to you. With the knees outside the arms, you can now squeeze in to the shoulders to activate the adductors and deep core. The core muscles will help to fire up the serrates anterior muscles which stabilize the shoulder girdle and give you the lift that makes arm balances light and easy. This approach will help you find ease in more arm balances, and builds the appropriate strength for transitions between arm balances and or handstands. If you haven’t read Arm Balances: Protraction Action yet you can head there now or wait till it arrives in your in box in the upcoming weeks.

 The Art Of Adjustments

This workshop is 1 of 2 parts taken from The Elements of Mastery online immersion. If you enjoy it, you will love the the online immersion.  In E.O.M I talk about the different qualities of touch and ways to give adjustments. Not all adjustment styles are suitable for everyone, and its important to be confident in what you are offering to your students so be sure to practice these with a friend before working with students or strangers.

Core Strength

This video is taken from the Handstand Training online workshop. Core strength for handstand is not exactly what most people think. No matter how many crunches or sit ups you do, your core strength will not be developed properly for handstand. This is because in those exercises you are using the core for movement instead of as a stabilizer. In addition exercises like crunches completely omit the rest of the body and isolate one small section. This approach can be beneficial sometimes but in the case of handstand your body needs to understand how to activate its core in relationship to the entire system. Here is one of the exercises that I find incredibly useful to build the appropriate core strength for handstand.

Lotus

Without Knee Pain 

Lotus

Without Knee Pain 

This workshop is intended to help you develop an understanding of how many of the hip muscles also attach at or below the knee joint and as a result your hips and knees are completely connected. Trying ot stretch the muscles of the hips can pull on the alignment of the knee and cause pain or discomfort.

Rather than focus your energy on lotus it self focus your energy on your body and the sensations of it. Seek to feel what your actions create for you. If something in this recording feels excellent, try to memorize what it is so you can use it in your daily practice. If something I share in this recording doesn’t work for your body, take note of it so you can ask a medical professional about it and/or choose to avoid it in the future.

Lotus pose in perhaps one of the more saught out and iconic postures of yoga but there is no doubt it is a high risk posture for the knee joint because of the required external rotation at the hips. This workshop is intended to help you maximize hip mobility through standing and seated postures in order to put less stress on the knees when attempting lotus pose. This being said all hip openers pose a risk on the knees, so I highly recommend taking your practice slow. As with any physical activity, consult a doctor or trained professional to see if these exercises are right for you. IF you already have a knee injury this practice is not recommended. Instead you may find many bennefits in listening along!

Instructions: Press play on the audio recording below. Due to the length of the recording, it may take 1-5 minutes to load the mp3 depending on your connection speed. You will not see a progress bar.
