Yoga Lessons

It was a busy morning today, but the yoga session, after 2 weeks absence, was good. Yeah, one was that goner case, then last week, 'ponteng'. In fact, I wonder if any of them also forgot like I did two weeks ago? I will not raise the question, though.

I never realised it before, but it seems that Dr D will instruct us to do between 12 - 15 poses per session for the whole 1 and half hour there. I only started to count it today. Let me see, if I remember the poses. I wanted to write all the diffrerent poses he taught us in a notebook, but never did get to get around it. Once you're home, there's just no time to write it down. Ok la... I admit, actually, it just slips my mind. Especially everytime after the session, a few of us will go for our second breakfast, or brunch, and catch up on sizzling girly stuff. Hahaha..!

After the warm up session of 15 minutes, which I described in my earlier entry, we were asked to lie down and rest for about 2 minutes, as it was quite a vigorous exercise non-stop. Then start all the other poses. Some of the poses we did as illustrated below. Each of these poses will be repeated at least twice or more, and sometimes longer than the first time.

This is actually 3 different poses that we did, suppose to be good for your back, and.... another one I cannot remember.

From the two pictures above, we started with a pose like the upper one, then move our hands to the side on the floor, then on to the third pose as in the lower picture.

We sat like this to concerntrate on breathing. 4 counts of breathe in, 16 counts of 'hold' and 8 counts of breathe out.

Well, those are some of the poses I can remember and find the pictures online for today's lesson. Soon I will have to make a point to write or draw out all the poses that we learn. Dr D stressed that we're supposed to practice them at home everyday, but till today I am yet to 'put it in practice'. Soon.......!

Salam ydiana,

Good! Once you're an expert, perhaps we can get together - you, me, snowflake and all - and exchange knowledge; I'll teach 6steps taichi.
