OPENING (up to 15 mins):

  • Introduce yourself especially to those who are new to the home. Notate their names in your phone/notebook to remember for future sessions. Provide extra care/attention to those who are new the program and those who are leaving soon as they may experience higher levels of stress.
  • Start all sessions with a check-in so clients have an opportunity to share how they doing.
  • Open with a discussion on a theme and setting an intention (sankalpa). Setting an intention is very important. Please include in all classes.

 

ASANA CLASS (approx 25-30 minutes of breath-based movements):

Sample practice (please note this is only a sample as it may be more beneficial to offer a more restorative or invigorating practice depending on client’s energy for the day):

  • start supine with knees bent with mindful breathing (connecting navel center to spine),
  • apanasana (hug right knee to underarm, left knee, both knees with rocking),
  • move to all 4’s and flowing from neutral spine to child’s pose 5 times,
  • downward facing dog,
  • mountain pose,
  • simple neck stretches (avoid dropping head back),
  • half sun salutations (3 rounds),
  • standing lateral stretching,
  • chair, warrior 1, warrior 2,
  • balancing posture (tree, warrior 3, etc.)
  • consider adding one or two fun yet challenging postures to keep them engaged and always give variations for those who may be intimidated by challenging postures (ie. crow, standing bow, bound side angle, etc.),
  • seated or supine leg stretches (badda konasana, janu, supine pigeon, spinal twist)
  • bridge (flowing up and down), hug knees in to prepare for savasana

 

GUIDED BREATHING / MEDITATION IN SAVASANA (minimum 15-20 minutes):

Sample:

  • belly breathing,
  • reiterate intention/sankalpa,
  • guided meditation/yoga nidra (ie. body scan).
  • Use eye pillows (option for them) to help remove distractions. We can supply eye pillows for your use with class.
  • During yoga nidra, option to offer very light neck and head body work only if you feel comfortable doing so. Please be extra mindful/careful about touching students and always ask for permission first and reassure them that it’s okay if they prefer not to be touched.
