My question is for Timothy McCall.
Well this is a little embarrassing but I canít cross my legs. I could when I was younger but I canít now. I havenít been able to since elementary school and I donít know why. Is it my bone structure maybe? I was wondering if theres a way for me to cross my legs through yoga. Its awkward when I do a video and it start with a cross legged pose and I donít know what to do instead so I always find myself skipping that part. Any advice and a reason why this is?
I'm a '3-year old' yoga teacher from Belgrade, Serbia. I'm interested in safety of Viparita Shalabhasana (Full Locust pose) considering that whole body weight is. more or less, neck-bearing. How that effect cervical spine (vertebras, ligaments) of a healthy individual (not to suggest posture like this to someone with back/neck problems goes without saying?
I have a family member who was imprisoned 5-years ago. He has used his time in prison to try and better himself. He is taking paralegal classes online and wants to explore yoga. As he states, "I realize that when you are alone with your thoughts for such a long time, you better learn how to cultivate those thoughts". On his behalf, is there a basic (he has never done yoga) sequence(s) that he can do with no prior experience and with the limits of being incarcerated (e.g., small space, no feedback on alignment) with respect to the physical practice of yoga and also any books about yoga/meditation that are basic and accessible?
A older raised a very important point at class this week asking how to strengthen his bicep muscles. He has been attending yoga for two years making great progress but is worried about weaker bisceps and can find few postures to help. I had to agree as his teacher that most arm poses attend to the forearm, triceps and shoulders. Have I missed anything?
Ok, so what poses do you recommend for relaxation and flexibility. I'm 13 and have taken a sudden interest in yoga! I do it every morning before school to keep me lose and ready for the day, but when I'm about to sleep, I feel stiff and restless. What do you recommend?
Do yoga classes for men really differ in scope and organization? As a yoga teacher what would your emphasis be when teaching me: strength, flexibility, relation? Many thanks
