I wish they would have included photos - it would be very helpful for us "visual" folks.

Absolutely a great sequence, I taught this to my yoga class just last night. I felt that the explanation of the pelvic tilt was priceless because it was such a great experience to put into memory for the action and the way it felt in the body. I then taught the flow of asanas reminding my students of the pelvic tilt. I feel that as a teacher finding different cues to give paints a more colorful picture for the student to be successful in their practice.
Thank you ,

Where can I find more sequences by Charles Matkin


In response to Christine P, "sitting bones" is the laymen's term for the ischial tuberosities which can be found in the middle of the crease of each buttock. You can feel them if you sit on cement steps. ^_^


I love this sequence. For me, it's a good mix of what I am able to do and what I am striving for... I found it helped to do each pose as part of a sun salutation.
Thank you & namaste:)


I loved the descriptions and the details -it will make a difference for me and many others - I am grateful for the message!

Sure --- I do this everyday!!!!! (ha ha!!!!!)

Oh well .....
Love Sharon

What in heavens name are "sitting bones"?? I am unable to follow your description of how to do the forward and reverse tilt because it is unclear whether you mean tail bone, pelvic bones, etc. Did you by chance, have a beginning yoga practicioner try these descriptions out before you published to be sure a beginner could understand them? Always a good idea! Thanks!


This is great having the entire article on one page!
