Naked Yoga with Props 1: Blocks for Accessibility!

Teacher: Cat Noble,
Student: Wara
This practice is good for people with limited flexibility. Props can be daunting for yogis unfamiliar with how to incorporate them into practice, but after becoming more comfortable with props, you will see that there really is no wrong way to use them. Widely endorsed by B.K.S. Iyengar, yoga props are primarily a method of keeping a practitioner’s alignment intact, without forcing them further into a pose than their body is prepared for. This video will demonstrate how to use yoga blocks to make poses such as trikonasana (triangle) and ardha chandrasana (balancing half moon) more accessible to practitioners who have trouble reaching the ground, or simply feel overextended and uncomfortable in the full expression of the pose. Other poses demonstrated with modifications include easy pose, chair, warrior III, butterfly and puppy pose. Blocks will help the practitioner align his/her body in order to feel proper muscular engagement without overworking the joints. NYV0061A

Naked Yoga for Standing Workers!

Full-Video: https://vimeo.com/216216691
Teacher: Cat Noble
Student: Collibrina
(Level: Beginner-Intermediate)
The human body takes a lot of strain from standing jobs such as retail, food service and preparation, and health care. The hard surfaces upon which we stand and walk certainly don’t help the situation. This video will demonstrate a sequence of yoga poses to loosen a tight lower back and hamstrings, bring mobility and strength to the ankles and feet, as well as build strength in the legs to prevent damage to the lower joints. It is recommended to practice this sequence every day in the morning upon waking and at night before sleeping. If this is not possible, then at least three times per week, once a day. Practitioners should always listen to the “yes” and “no” signals of their own bodies, focusing on the internal feeling of where the pose is working, not the external shape of how it looks.

Naked Intermediate Pilates 4: Hundreds!

Visit: http://NakedYogaSchool.com
Teacher: Skye,
Student: Collibrina
In this video i show more advanced levels of The Hundreds which is the primary exercise in Pilates after your warm up. It stabilizes the trunk(torso) and warms up the core in preparation for the series of exercises to come. Though the basic Hundreds is a difficult exercise; once mastered you can challenge yourself and the strength of your core by adding some layers to it. By extending the legs, placing them at lower angles and/or moving the legs steadily and fluidly while pumping the arms you will take yourself to the next level. Always start slow and see the patterns or shapes that the body is making to prevent strain. I remove my clothes to work more freely as I do the movement. NYV0055D
