Rope Yoga Master Class by Yash at 136.1 Yoga Studio on July 28th ( 5pm - 6.30 pm )

Yoga with ropes is an exciting way to enhance your yoga practice. Rope work allows you to stay longer in the asanas and get deeper into it. You will be able to reach places in your body which are otherwise hard to access. Rope work will help you improve your alignment in postures. We can use ropes for a greater relaxation or we can use it to work stronger in the poses.
Ropes breakdown the asanas giving the practitioner more deeper awareness and detail of the given posture. They also help bring practitioners back into alignment in a very gentle way with a chiropractic, physio and massaging effect. Hanging on the ropes sounds a bit scary but is in fact a most soothing and relaxing practice that is extremely calming and creates a lot of fun and brings a smile to your face!

Come hang with Yash and play with ropes !

Date :28th July
Time : 5pm - 6.30 pm

Investment
-Rs 600 for members
-Rs 800 for non members

Call 044-42347670 to book your spot.

Hapticity of the hands.. How awake are your hands while practicing? How does bringing your awareness of your hands change the orientation of your body? How does it influence the organisation of your shoulder girdle and it's connection to the spine? How does this reflect into daily life? How does feeling the skin of your hands touching your steering wheel change how you drive your car or ride your bike?

#yogamakesmefeel Day 7: myself (yogis choice). Yoga makes me feel *myself*. Both in the sense of feeling like who I think I am inside and in the sense of being in tune with my body and what it really needs. Like today it needs me to chill because I’m sick and yesterday I was anxious so I could sort out the anxiety from what I really needed. There’s yoga for that. Yoga meets me where I am and doesn’t need me to be anything else. I do dream of having a chair that isn’t too tall for me but that’s a general life goal 😂🧘‍♀️Hosts:

We’re excited to introduce you to Shar, our newest UTKATA family member. In addition to her great yoga skills, she brings her upbeat and positive energies to every place she goes to! Shar will primarily be teaching in Mississauga, Brampton, Oakville, and Burlington. Here’s a bit more about her:

As an Advertising Executive working in Toronto, Shar’s fitness routine matched her work life: fast-paced and high-intensity. It was during her first pregnancy that Shar started to regularly practice yoga. As her body changed, she found that yoga provided a much more sustainable balance of flexibility and strength training. Shar completed her 200h yoga teacher training while pregnant with her second child. Today, she practices daily and enjoys sharing the wisdom of its teachings. #chairyoga #yoga #wellness #Toronto #utkatayoga

What is Chair yoga?
It is a beautiful and gentle form of #yoga which can be practiced by sitting comfortably on a #chair at #anytime and #anywhere.
💺💺💺💺💺💺💺
.
Why Chair yoga?
1. Sometimes, we don't have the time to go to a yoga class. Practing chair yoga for 5 to 10 minutes can make us feel happy and relaxed.
2. When we sit for long hours at work or at home, our shoulders and back start to hunch, leading to severe pain in the back. Practing chair yoga for just a few minutes will help you maintain a good posture.
3. Often at work, schools and colleges, we get frustrated due to deadlines and hectic schedule. If we just take out 5 minutes to breathe and stretch at our own place, we will be more efficient and focused.
.

Who can benefit from chair yoga?
.
1. Students and office people can practice it daily to lead a stress free life. 
2. Those who cannot practice regular yoga due to some injuries or health issues, can start with chair yoga.

If you wish to organize Chair yoga sessions at your place of work, college or school, contact us on 9820948291.
🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

Welcome Forward Fold or Uttanasana to #modificationmonday. Please don’t hesitate to reach out and ask questions here or in the studio
❤️
1. Forward Fold with a Block
-great for tight hamstrings
-place a block or two in front of the feet, underneath the shoulders
-keep a gentle bend in the knees, hinge from the hips, keep the spine long
-press palms or fingertips into block for support

2. Forward Fold with Knees Bent
-good for those with low back troubles
-bend the knees to get into forward fold
-for this modification, just keep them bent once you're there!
-allow the torso to lay heavy towards the thighs
-release the head and neck

3. Forward Fold in a Chair
-find a sturdy chair with a hard seat,
-sit tall, close to the edge of the chair, make sure feet are touching the floor (you can always place blocks under your feet)
-reach arms up overhead, hinge from the hips folding towards your thighs, resting palms anywhere along the way

4. Forward Fold while Squeezing a Block
-great for strengthening the inner thighs
-place a block between thighs, at least an inch or two above the knee caps
-bend knees, grow tall, & fold all while squeezing thighs towards one another

Chair Shoulder Stand. You can attempt this on many chairs of the side of your couch! 👉🏼Drape your legs over the back rung of the chair and scoot onto the chair. Slide off until the crown of your head touches the floor. Place one of your feet on the back rung for balance and push yourself off until the back of the head is on the floor, shoulders on the blanket, and sacrum on the edge of the chair. 👉🏼always slide out to come out. ⭐️check out the 3 different leg positions. #iyengaryoga #chairshoulderstand #sarvangasana #shoulderstand #chairyoga #goupsidedown #viparitakarani

Wow! 4 Really Stupid Ways To Use A Chair During Yoga According To Popular Insta-yogis - Number 3 Will Blow Your Mind!!!
So, all four of these postures were tagged #chairyoga - in my experience, a chair is a terrific prop when used right, but these poses didn’t look beneficial to me. Not wanting to judge postures mercilessly without trying them myself, I did - so now you don’t have to.
Pose 1 standing backbend: my lower back is compressed and my hands are way too far apart. A wall would be a better choice with more control.
Pose 2 standing dancers: I almost flipped the chair forward because of the pressure of my thigh on the back of it. Using a strap wouldn’t look as pretty but would be safer.
Pose 3 forearm balance: I actually got stuck here! My legs were hooked and I couldn’t kick back over without flipping the chair (again.) Using a wall to stabilize will help to build core and not endanger your safety.
Pose 4 splits: not really harmful, but won’t actually help you if you can already do the splits, so kind of pointless. Blocks under the thighs would work better.
Remember - sometimes what looks like yoga is just a hyper-mobile contortionist model with a hair and makeup team, studio lighting and a professional photographer/boyfriend throwing impossible shapes that don’t resemble anything close to true asana just for the likes. KNOW YOUR YOGA.
