Yoga In The East Village

1
00:00:00,000 –> 00:00:03,030
okay we’re all comfy with Anita yoga

2
00:00:03,030 –> 00:00:04,859
instructor extraordinaire how do you

3
00:00:04,859 –> 00:00:09,480
like that no you teach yoga at noon here

4
00:00:09,480 –> 00:00:11,570
in the village so what does that entail

5
00:00:11,570 –> 00:00:15,450
so it’s a one hour free class and people

6
00:00:15,450 –> 00:00:16,949
come down and get a chance to be exposed

7
00:00:16,949 –> 00:00:18,750
to the east village development that’s

8
00:00:18,750 –> 00:00:21,480
happening but also get access to what I

9
00:00:21,480 –> 00:00:22,710
think is really important for yoga

10
00:00:22,710 –> 00:00:24,449
classes for the community I think

11
00:00:24,449 –> 00:00:25,410
there’s a lot of people who feel like

12
00:00:25,410 –> 00:00:26,939
there are obstacles to them getting

13
00:00:26,939 –> 00:00:28,830
fitness and practicing and being part of

14
00:00:28,830 –> 00:00:31,019
it and this eliminates obstacles all you

15
00:00:31,019 –> 00:00:33,329
have to do is bring a mat and maybe some

16
00:00:33,329 –> 00:00:34,920
shorts and then come on down there you

17
00:00:34,920 –> 00:00:38,340
go now so what sort of class is it to

18
00:00:38,340 –> 00:00:39,840
give people an idea what sort of things

19
00:00:39,840 –> 00:00:42,329
do show people because is it beginners

20
00:00:42,329 –> 00:00:44,879
can come to it’s not yeah because it’s

21
00:00:44,879 –> 00:00:47,399
open to the public I I build a class

22
00:00:47,399 –> 00:00:50,100
clown with the anticipation that I’m

23
00:00:50,100 –> 00:00:51,930
going to get people from varying age

24
00:00:51,930 –> 00:00:54,210
ranges and abilities so what I do is I

25
00:00:54,210 –> 00:00:55,739
teach a class that’s fun and upbeat we

26
00:00:55,739 –> 00:00:57,390
move a fair bit but then I give

27
00:00:57,390 –> 00:00:58,739
different modifications so that

28
00:00:58,739 –> 00:01:00,719
everybody feels like successful even if

29
00:01:00,719 –> 00:01:02,219
you didn’t get to the peak pose and got

30
00:01:02,219 –> 00:01:04,619
you get pretty close and then I also

31
00:01:04,619 –> 00:01:06,479
have a yoga therapy backgrounds so I’ll

32
00:01:06,479 –> 00:01:07,740
come around and adjust people make sure

33
00:01:07,740 –> 00:01:09,540
they’re safe nice and that is important

34
00:01:09,540 –> 00:01:12,360
to be able to do the positions right in

35
00:01:12,360 –> 00:01:13,710
the right way and have your body in the

36
00:01:13,710 –> 00:01:15,780
right position for sure yeah now well

37
00:01:15,780 –> 00:01:18,060
let’s let’s show me some stuff here okay

38
00:01:18,060 –> 00:01:19,799
to get show me I’m not showing you how

39
00:01:19,799 –> 00:01:22,020
to do plank pose or high shadows and

40
00:01:22,020 –> 00:01:24,450
then downward dog just because this

41
00:01:24,450 –> 00:01:26,670
poses get done the most in yoga practice

42
00:01:26,670 –> 00:01:28,080
and I think there but also the most

43
00:01:28,080 –> 00:01:28,940
misunderstood

44
00:01:28,940 –> 00:01:30,740
okay well there you go yeah who’s this

45
00:01:30,740 –> 00:01:32,150
and you did ask me before we started

46
00:01:32,150 –> 00:01:33,800
rolling if I’ve heard of them and I have

47
00:01:33,800 –> 00:01:38,480
so there you go okay yeah we’re gonna

48
00:01:38,480 –> 00:01:40,610
start just on a tabletop position on

49
00:01:40,610 –> 00:01:43,550
your hands and knees mhm and the most

50
00:01:43,550 –> 00:01:44,990
important thing is to take a look at the

51
00:01:44,990 –> 00:01:47,300
hands so you want to spread your fingers

52
00:01:47,300 –> 00:01:48,920
wide you’re not till they hurt but

53
00:01:48,920 –> 00:01:50,570
enough that your hands feel active and

54
00:01:50,570 –> 00:01:51,560
you want to have your hands

55
00:01:51,560 –> 00:01:53,000
shoulder-width apart so this is great

56
00:01:53,000 –> 00:01:54,890
and then you want to bring weight into

57
00:01:54,890 –> 00:01:56,300
your thumbs and your index fingers so

58
00:01:56,300 –> 00:01:57,290
that if someone was going to come and

59
00:01:57,290 –> 00:01:59,270
try to pack your thumb up they just see

60
00:01:59,270 –> 00:02:01,820
how good you’re doing you can pull them

61
00:02:01,820 –> 00:02:04,340
up off the mat super the push-up pose or

62
00:02:04,340 –> 00:02:05,600
plank pose you’re gonna bring some

63
00:02:05,600 –> 00:02:06,890
weight forward I think this is where

64
00:02:06,890 –> 00:02:08,270
people get scared they’re afraid to put

65
00:02:08,270 –> 00:02:10,009
weight into their fingers but you want

66
00:02:10,009 –> 00:02:11,180
to slide your shoulders right over your

67
00:02:11,180 –> 00:02:13,250
hands ok and then keep your weight here

68
00:02:13,250 –> 00:02:14,870
and start to straighten your legs and

69
00:02:14,870 –> 00:02:17,960
tuck your toes back yeah good this is

70
00:02:17,960 –> 00:02:20,300
the corpos so show the strength but as

71
00:02:20,300 –> 00:02:21,920
long as your heels are pressing back and

72
00:02:21,920 –> 00:02:23,690
your belly’s lifted up you can hold this

73
00:02:23,690 –> 00:02:27,500
reply 10 minutes yeah or just want a

74
00:02:27,500 –> 00:02:30,560
tradition and then you simply push into

75
00:02:30,560 –> 00:02:32,540
your fingertips and lift your hips back

76
00:02:32,540 –> 00:02:34,459
drop your head and you’re in downward

77
00:02:34,459 –> 00:02:36,530
dog down weird uh yeah so you want to

78
00:02:36,530 –> 00:02:38,120
focus on the spine being as long as it

79
00:02:38,120 –> 00:02:39,709
can be and you’re pretty tall so you can

80
00:02:39,709 –> 00:02:41,450
bend your knees a little bit oh and then

81
00:02:41,450 –> 00:02:45,350
