Welcome to the new Yoga sequence workout. Here you will find different cycles and sequences programmed by an expert yoga teacher. These yoga sequences provide a blueprint or yoga map for teachers and students.
This cycle of the Yoga Sequences workout will focus on Sport Specific yoga sequences. Each sport in this program will have two sequences per week. The short sequences will range between 15- 30 minutes and can be added on to the end of a sport session, workout, or short rest day. The longer sequences, ranging from 75-90 minutes, are great for rest and recovery days and will include a deeper practice with standing poses and seated poses.
The sequences will be posted on Tuesday and Thursday, with a meditation once a week on Sundays.
Week 7, Day 3
Creating Joy Meditation
“Joy, rather than happiness, is the goal of life, for joy is the emotion which accompanies our fulfilling our natures as human beings. It is based on the experience of one’s identity as being of worth and dignity.”
Through the power of the mind we can learn to re-train ourselves to experience the joy of life.
Take a comfortable seat and begin to calm the breath.
Start by counting 10 long and slow breaths, inhaling and exhaling through the nose with the mouth closed.
Begin to examine your current levels of happiness and joy. How would you rate your perspective on a scale of 1-10?
What could you shift internally to cultivate a more joyful perspective?
Stay here with these thoughts as you listen to your breath.
Continue to go deeper and visualize yourself bringing joy into a challenging situation.
Stay here with a calm breath pattern for 10 minutes.
