Hello and Namaste,

As we enter into a new season, I'm excited to introduce you to Yogarama's new quarterly newsletter.

During Autumn, our yoga practice at Wylie's Baths we will be focused on complementing the windy & wet weather by grounding down and connecting to the earth through a range of yoga asanas such as Warrior I, virabhandrasana I & downward dog, Adho Mukha Svanasana (FOCUS below). 

Yogarama is now offering you a selection of deeper yoga experiences to help build on the foundations of your yoga practice at Wylie's Baths. Offerings include, April yoga bush retreat and an amazing India yoga discovery experience, mindfulness workshops & foundation yoga courses for beginners & for regular yogis. 


Having spent four years teaching yoga classes at Wylie's Baths and balancing this with a corporate job in healthcare & science communications, I have decided to commit wholeheartedly to teaching you yoga & mindfulness. Thank you to all my loyal yoga students that have inspired me to take on this new path.
 
Be who you are and say what you feel,
because those who mind don't matter, and
those who matter, don't mind.

Yoga Instructions for Downward Dog Pose
1. Come onto the floor on your hands and knees. Set your knees directly below your hips and your hands slightly forward of your shoulders. Spread your palms, index fingers parallel or slightly turned out, and turn your toes under.

2. Exhale and lift your knees away from the floor. At firstkeep the knees slightly bent and the heels lifted away from the floor. Lengthen your tailbone away from the back of your pelvis and press it lightly toward the pubis. Against this resistance, lift the sitting bones toward the ceiling, and from your inner ankles draw the inner legs up into the groins.
3. Then with an exhalation, push your top thighs back and stretch your heels onto or down toward the floor. Straighten your knees but be sure not to lock them. Firm the outer thighs and roll the upper thighs inward slightly. Narrow the front of the pelvis.
4. Firm the outer arms and press the bases of the index fingers actively into the floor. From these two points lift along your inner arms from the wrists to the tops of the shoulders. Firm your shoulder blades against your back, then widen them and draw them toward the tailbone. Keep the head between the upper arms; don’t let it hang.
5. Stay in this pose for 1 to 3 minutes. Then bend your knees to the floor with an exhalation and rest in child's pose
