I am thoroughly enjoying teaching yoga classes. My students, because of their sincere interest, make teaching joyful for me. We are almost at the end of  Series 1.  I will be offering Series 2 beginning in February 2021. However, since these are going to be progressive series, only those who have completed Series 1 can join
Series 2.

If you have missed out on Series 1, and if there are twenty or more interested students, I will be happy to offer the recorded version of Series 1. If interested, please write to me.

A morning 10-12 minute exercise routine that can be helpful:

Drink about 300 ml of water at room temperature.  After drinking water, do the following exercises. Do them cheerfully and have fun. This routine can help you with regular bowel movements and also give you a boost of energy and enthusiasm. The order of exercises is not important but keep a medium to fast pace.
This exercise routine, however, is not a substitute for your regular exercise and asana practice.

  3. Do the squats. Stand with your feet hip-width apart. Stretch the arms to the front with palms facing down. Take a full breath. Breathing out, bend the knees, and go down in a squat as low as you can. Breathing in, and stretching the arms up to the ceiling, come to the standing position, go high on your toes. Breathing out, go down again. Repeat 10 times. Don’t worry too much about coordinating the movements with the breath.

  4. Lie on the back. Do tummy crunches. Bring both knees close to your tummy. Place both hands under your head. Lift the head off the floor. Straighten the right leg. Bring your right elbow and left knee closer to each other while squeezing the tummy. Reverse. Do it 15-20 times. (one to the left and one to the right is one time)

  5. Lie on the back. Do 15-20 lateral pelvic tilts. Push one leg toward the front to make it longer than the other, and then reverse. Continue at a medium pace. Repeat.

  6. Lying on the back, exhale and hold the breath out. Contract the tummy strongly and move it up and down for as long as you can do it while holding the breath out. Repeat three times.
