Developing a home practice
You may wish to develop a home practice in addition to attending weekly classes. It is more beneficial to do a little each day rather than a big splurge of practice at the weekend. Find a time in the day when you will be left at peace, free from interruptions. Have a start and finish to your session i.e. sitting or lying quietly to begin with and always finish with at least 5 minutes savasana or preferably more if your session lasts one hour or more.
You may find the sequences below helpful. They were developed by the Iyengar Yoga Association of Greater New York. Timings are given for some poses; students are encouraged to do others to their own capacity; repetitions are encouraged over timings in order to avoid injury.
At our National Iyengar Yoga Day in January 2019 and 2020, we led a practice of 100 asanas.
Go on – challenge yourself!
