March 24 Deliverables

This is the last post of yoga poses. Spencer and I have both learned 25 yoga poses in total and are ready to teach. These last 5 are the most challenging poses out there and will test the knowledge of the people in out class.

Eka Hasta Vrksasana – One Handed Tree Pose

Eka Hasta Vrksasana - One Handed Tree Pose

As if balancing upside down on two hands isn’t tricky enough, some yogis do it on one! This pose is part of the 5th and 6th series in Ashtanga, and would obviously only be suitable for anyone who can nail the regular handstand. If you can do this one, you have super impressive core strength, mental focus, and strong wrists given your whole body is balancing on one of them! (Yogi: Dylan Werner)

Sirsa Padasana – Head To Foot Pose

Sirsa Padasana - Head To Foot Pose

This pose is one of the most intense backbends out there. There is a lot going on: balance, intense mental focus, and the obvious—a combination of muscular strength in the back and deep flexibility of the spine.

Pungu Mayurasana – Wounded Peacock

Pungu Mayurasana - Wounded Peacock Pose

This pose is essentially Peacock – but using only one arm. Peacock strengthens the wrists, shoulders and arms and helps to improve digestion due to the pressure applied by the arms. The one armed version truly tests mental focus, and in the name of digestive balance should be practiced on both sides! (Yogi: Hannah Franco)

Gandha Bherundasana – Formidable Face Pose

Gandha Bherundasana - Formidable Face Pose

One the most pretzel-esque of all the asanas, and at first glance it looks more contortionist than yoga! The final expression is an intense stretch across the front of the body and as well as a full on flexion of the spine. End result—you can now scratch your nose with your toes. (Yogi: Kino MacGregor)

Sayanasana – Scorpion Pose Variation

Shyasana

Care to stand on your elbows and pull your feet up or towards your head? Boom! Sayanasana (pronounced “Shyanasana”). Not just for shy yoga dudes. (Yogi: Dylan Werner)

Project Update 4

For our recent goal we need to learn some more yoga poses so we know what to teach anyone who comes what to do. We also need to set up posters. My idea is to draw a picture of Spencer and I doing yoga to intrigue people to sign up. Depending on how many people are there we will have either one or two classes. The beginning class will be the starters. After a couples classes they will move on the the pro class. There is not many positions to learn but out goal is to help as many students as we can. After the posters we will get everyone’s information so we can let them know the times and schedule appointments for the classes. We will take this very seriously because Spencer and I want to make Leigh a less stressful place and a more positive place to go to school.

 

Humans Of Denmark

How do you feel about Hamlet?

“All I care for is my family legacy. Hamlet will ruin that for my daughter Ophelia. All he will do is break her heart and it would look bad toward me in the end. Hamlet is not responsible nor faithful. I despise him. I do not understand what she sees in him and that frustrates me. I try to tell her to leave him and I keep her from him but somehow they see each other and are “madly” in love. I will not stand for this and will try to keep them apart. It saddens me my daughter is blinded by fake love and I will make her see the truth whether she wants to or not. It is my duty to do so, for the greater good of my daughter, and more so of this family and it’s legacy I have created for it”.
