00:00:31,079 –> 00:00:32,789

8
00:00:40,079 –> 00:00:42,809
only the body but also the mind and

9
00:00:42,809 –> 00:00:46,199
emotions and generally your spirit as

10
00:00:46,199 –> 00:00:50,510
well so it’s a holistic

11
00:00:51,640 –> 00:00:56,310
holistic way to

12
00:00:56,310 –> 00:01:00,170
overall health the body mind and spirit

13
00:01:00,170 –> 00:01:03,870
so you’ll feel good in the body but also

14
00:01:03,870 –> 00:01:07,680
if it will help regulate your emotions

15
00:01:07,680 –> 00:01:11,610
and bring clarity to the mind so

16
00:01:11,610 –> 00:01:13,050
Hannah’s been here a couple months on H

17
00:01:13,050 –> 00:01:14,910
Street so Hannah if someone wanted to

18
00:01:14,910 –> 00:01:18,330
come by and get started in yoga what

19
00:01:18,330 –> 00:01:20,430
kind of things should they be looking

20
00:01:20,430 –> 00:01:23,520
for too so they just want to check out

21
00:01:23,520 –> 00:01:26,340
the schedule and say you know what what

22
00:01:26,340 –> 00:01:28,260
type of yoga they’re interested in and

23
00:01:28,260 –> 00:01:30,300
what level view / they’re interested in

24
00:01:30,300 –> 00:01:33,030
at the studio we have many different

25
00:01:33,030 –> 00:01:37,140
styles of yoga and levels so that’s the

26
00:01:37,140 –> 00:01:39,630
first place they wanna check out but the

27
00:01:39,630 –> 00:01:41,820
main thing I think that I always say to

28
00:01:41,820 –> 00:01:44,729
folks who are new to yoga is to try out

29
00:01:44,729 –> 00:01:46,950
a bunch of different styles at first and

30
00:01:46,950 –> 00:01:48,600
to practice with a lot of different

31
00:01:48,600 –> 00:01:51,570
teachers because the number one thing to

32
00:01:51,570 –> 00:01:53,869
receive all these benefits of yoga is

33
00:01:53,869 –> 00:01:57,000
constant practice so when you find a

34
00:01:57,000 –> 00:01:58,820
teacher and a style that really

35
00:01:58,820 –> 00:02:04,050
corresponds to practice regularly do you

36
00:02:04,050 –> 00:02:05,850
have to be in good shape already no

37
00:02:05,850 –> 00:02:07,360
absolutely not

38
00:02:07,360 –> 00:02:10,500
this is a benefit of yoga will be

39
00:02:10,500 –> 00:02:13,780
radiant health to the body so it’s

40
00:02:13,780 –> 00:02:15,340
something that will come with constant

41
00:02:15,340 –> 00:02:17,980
practice great great Hannah’s going to

42
00:02:17,980 –> 00:02:19,300
show us a couple things sitting when we

43
00:02:19,300 –> 00:02:22,630
take a look okay so the very first pose

44
00:02:22,630 –> 00:02:25,210
i want to show you all is a beginners

45
00:02:25,210 –> 00:02:28,690
variation of the headstand pose we call

46
00:02:28,690 –> 00:02:31,540
this the hair pose and this is a

47
00:02:31,540 –> 00:02:34,570
wonderful pose my teacher Dharma Mitra

48
00:02:34,570 –> 00:02:36,790
calls this the king of all the awesomest

49
00:02:36,790 –> 00:02:39,400
all of the postures because it brings

50
00:02:39,400 –> 00:02:41,760
fresh blood into the brain and promotes

51
00:02:41,760 –> 00:02:44,530
clarity and mental sharpness in the mind

52
00:02:44,530 –> 00:02:47,640
so it’s critical to really bring

53
00:02:47,640 –> 00:02:50,739
clearness in the mine so the way to

54
00:02:50,739 –> 00:02:52,630
begin the poses you would sit on your

55
00:02:52,630 –> 00:02:54,459
heels and you’re just here for a moment

56
00:02:54,459 –> 00:02:57,580
take the hands back to the heels reach

57
00:02:57,580 –> 00:03:01,750
the heart up and back exhale draw the

58
00:03:01,750 –> 00:03:04,120
chin down to the chest draw the belly

59
00:03:04,120 –> 00:03:06,940
onto the thighs and take the top of the

60
00:03:06,940 –> 00:03:08,470
head on the ground or you’re looking at

61
00:03:08,470 –> 00:03:11,830
the knees slowly lift your feet all the

62
00:03:11,830 –> 00:03:14,130
way up rolling onto the top of the head

63
00:03:14,130 –> 00:03:16,450
and when you’re here close your eyes and

64
00:03:16,450 –> 00:03:22,510
just steady the breath to break suppose

65
00:03:22,510 –> 00:03:24,390
you’ll draw the seat back onto the heels

66
00:03:24,390 –> 00:03:27,430
take chin back to chest around the whole

67
00:03:27,430 –> 00:03:29,970
body up

68
00:03:32,570 –> 00:03:36,630
including with a spine center just like

69
00:03:36,630 –> 00:03:39,150
that so it’s nice to stay in that pose

70
00:03:39,150 –> 00:03:41,850
for you know five to 10 breaths just

71
00:03:41,850 –> 00:03:44,340
finding a rhythmic breath then

72
00:03:44,340 –> 00:03:46,260
eventually concentrating right in space

73
00:03:46,260 –> 00:03:50,520
in between the eyebrows and now I’ll

00:03:50,520 –> 00:03:53,790
