00:00:00,520 –> 00:00:03,189
hi I’m keno MacGregor we’re here at

2
00:00:03,189 –> 00:00:05,140
Miami Life Center today we’re going to

3
00:00:05,140 –> 00:00:07,060
be taking a look at how to use a yoga

4
00:00:07,060 –> 00:00:09,730
mat on a carpet the first thing that you

5
00:00:09,730 –> 00:00:11,260
would want to do is actually just place

6
00:00:11,260 –> 00:00:13,029
your yoga mat on top of the carpet make

7
00:00:13,029 –> 00:00:15,100
sure that it fit this carpet we’re using

8
00:00:15,100 –> 00:00:16,630
today is a little bit small but it’s

9
00:00:16,630 –> 00:00:18,550
great for demonstration purposes the

10
00:00:18,550 –> 00:00:20,350
primary place you’ll be using a carpet

11
00:00:20,350 –> 00:00:22,630
on to practice yoga in is either at a

12
00:00:22,630 –> 00:00:24,310
studio that has carpeting or perhaps at

13
00:00:24,310 –> 00:00:26,080
your home or hotel so you’ll really have

14
00:00:26,080 –> 00:00:28,150
a firm stable floor underneath the

15
00:00:28,150 –> 00:00:30,070
carpet so go ahead and grab your yoga

16
00:00:30,070 –> 00:00:31,840
mat and then just unroll it just as you

17
00:00:31,840 –> 00:00:33,970
would on any regular floor one of the

18
00:00:33,970 –> 00:00:35,350
things that’s different that you’ll find

19
00:00:35,350 –> 00:00:36,760
is rather than being on the wood floor

20
00:00:36,760 –> 00:00:38,440
as soon as you have a soft area

21
00:00:38,440 –> 00:00:40,090
underneath you’ll notice a yoga mat is a

22
00:00:40,090 –> 00:00:43,149
little more cushy right no problem just

23
00:00:43,149 –> 00:00:44,590
make sure that you’re protecting your

24
00:00:44,590 –> 00:00:46,090
wrists and your feet and you’re feeling

25
00:00:46,090 –> 00:00:48,040
a solid stable connection to the ground

26
00:00:48,040 –> 00:00:49,059
underneath you

27
00:00:49,059 –> 00:00:50,920
the next thing really to take a look at

28
00:00:50,920 –> 00:00:52,570
is whether the carpet is actually stable

29
00:00:52,570 –> 00:00:54,790
this carpets not so stable planted on

30
00:00:54,790 –> 00:00:55,960
the ground so you wouldn’t really want

31
00:00:55,960 –> 00:00:57,820
to jump forward or jump back you would

32
00:00:57,820 –> 00:01:00,370
want to do slow concentrated movements

33
00:01:00,370 –> 00:01:02,140
but if the carpets fixed to the ground

34
00:01:02,140 –> 00:01:03,670
then it’s permanently attached and you

35
00:01:03,670 –> 00:01:05,319
feel that it’s solid underneath you once

36
00:01:05,319 –> 00:01:06,819
you get used to the slightly more

37
00:01:06,819 –> 00:01:08,920
cushioning feeling underneath your hands

38
00:01:08,920 –> 00:01:10,659
and your feet you can test out your

39
00:01:10,659 –> 00:01:12,249
flexibility in your strength and

40
00:01:12,249 –> 00:01:14,499
actually jump forward and jump back into

41
00:01:14,499 –> 00:01:16,630
all the same motions so basically using

42
00:01:16,630 –> 00:01:18,670
a yoga mat on a carpet is just like

43
00:01:18,670 –> 00:01:21,789
using a yoga mat anywhere else so one

44
00:01:21,789 –> 00:01:23,409
exercise that you would do every day is

45
00:01:23,409 –> 00:01:25,209
a portion of the Sun Salutation

46
00:01:25,209 –> 00:01:27,189
chaturanga dandasana so you can take

47
00:01:27,189 –> 00:01:28,840
your hands around the front of the mat

48
00:01:28,840 –> 00:01:30,549
keep them about shoulder width apart and

49
00:01:30,549 –> 00:01:31,959
just to give it a good test to figure

50
00:01:31,959 –> 00:01:33,909
out if you have a stable surface outline

51
00:01:33,909 –> 00:01:35,619
your chest forward over your hands and

52
00:01:35,619 –> 00:01:38,109
exhale lower yourself down give that a

53
00:01:38,109 –> 00:01:39,729
good test feel if it’s stable

54
00:01:39,729 –> 00:01:42,549
inhale straighten your arms once you can

55
00:01:42,549 –> 00:01:44,020
do this motion you might also try

56
00:01:44,020 –> 00:01:46,359
chaturanga dandasana inhale

57
00:01:46,359 –> 00:01:49,810
upward-facing and exhale downward facing

58
00:01:49,810 –> 00:01:52,389
so basically using a yoga mat on a

59
00:01:52,389 –> 00:01:54,069
carpets just like using a yoga mat

60
00:01:54,069 –> 00:01:54,880
anywhere else

61
00:01:54,880 –> 00:01:56,889
I’m Quito McGregor and this has been how

62
00:01:56,889 –> 00:00:00,000
to use a yoga mat on a carpet
