Tara Fraser - The Easy Yoga Workbook is good - comes with a CD you just listen to and takes you through the poses (22) and the book has good pictures of the poses too - also includes a brief relaxation/meditation part at the end.
Hi NM, thanks.
All the "traveling teachers" seem to concentrate at the other side of the globe. No one in Americas.
But there is a link to a nice Ashtanga forum so maybe that's where I'll have more luck.
Are there any job centres for yogis? ;-)
Can someone please help me and advise if there are any websites where yoga teachers are advertising their services and/or looking for work?
I have work for a teacher but the problem is that the location for it is in Brazil and that person has to speak English and at least be interested in a healthy lifestyle.
I'm not a Yoga teacher, I just learned the Sivananda series 3 months ago in Ecuador from a Swiss guy who had just been through teacher training, and I've been doing headstands ever since with no pain. What really helps me is focusing on putting a lot of the weight on my arms. I feel weight going to the top of my head, but I can always shift the weight more to my arm base and it relieves the top of the head from a lot of stress. From time to time just after doing a headstand, I sit in child's pose and roll my neck around to loosen it up afterwards. In the series I do, after headstand, comes shoulder stand, plough, and then the lotus pose as a counter move to the prior poses, which seems to help balance out any stress in the neck.
That's my 2 cents and I could be completely wrong because I have not been able to find a Sivananda Yoga class in Austin to train with a teacher. Take what I said with a grain of salt as I'm going by what I can remember from 3 months ago, but hopefully one of the more experienced Yogis will chime in soon. =)
i just started doing headstands in my practice -is it normal for the muscles in the back of your neck to be tight afterwards/the following day? my muscles streeetch when i put my chin to my chest (it feels really nice). or could this be a sign that i'm not doing it correctly? i want to do it at home every day on my own without guidance. thanks :) :)
If you wonderful raw yogis are looking for an awesome video resource to deepen your practice head over to my website or youtube page... epicself.com or www.youtube.com/epicself
Hope to see you there :D
Thank you so much Michele (or do you prefer Anoop?), I appreciate your advice. Next time I will reduce the time of the postures a bit then, according to my energy level. I have experienced healing (temporary) before by doing daily meridian qigong, so I know it is possible, but the special technique was very time consuming; 3x a day for 3 months. I'd like to explore this yoga technique now, but want to do it in a responsible way, not to play with forces I don't know.
I love to come back to you when I have a question, thank you :) Best wishes,
