This brief introductory yoga session is dedicated to a few of my friends who needed a basic introduction to the practice of Asana. There’s really nothing Hermetic about it other than its quasi-psychedelic piss-poor production (Sorry). I realize the video itself is fairly obscure, but I’ve tried to give some instructions as we go. Work through this session as often as you’re able – regular practice will dramatically improve flexibility in your hips and hamstrings while strengthening your core, shoulders and arms.
I tend to emphasize planks and upper-body postures more than most people. For this reason, my stuff may be more suited to men than women – but this isn’t necessarily the case if you’re a strong armed woman. I hear breasts can be heavy.
As a general rule of thumb, hold each pose for five long deep breaths.
Remember – Yoga is far more than just Asana (poses) – check out my channel for more information, especially Aleister Crowley’s Eight Lectures on Yoga (http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLNnqqvK2yDEGcniajqU2TJCGiGNSTe-Ci)
If people like this, I can make more. Nevertheless, I’m no expert. I’ve just been at this for a few years and can conjure up a few decent routines vis-à-vis specific needs. I have no intention to compete with all of the glossy, high-quality, over-sexualized yoga instructors that are all the rage on YouTube these days. In any case, those are good too – just as long as you get moving and you practice consistently. Sitting is the new smoking, as they say.
