Roll & Restore 101 Summer Series w Karen Henderson
The Moon Sequence is a precursor to the Ashtanga Primary Series and is generally more accessible for almost all yoga practitioners. If you are having trouble with the Primary Series, or if you are struggling with an injury, this sequence is a great alternative. Although there are no jumps in this sequence, the core principles of vinyasa (continuous flow and awareness of breath) are maintained.
Chandra Krama is intended for practice on the new and full moons. Practicing an alternative gentle sequence at those times of the month can be advantageous. For example, you will avoid strain and injury if you do not do a strenuous practice at those times, and you can become increasingly aware of your changing internal body condition as influenced by the waxing and waning moon. Alternatively, the Moon sequence can be done at any time when you are feeling tired or incapable of doing your regular practice. Practiced with patience, this sequence is rewarding and strengthening.
The Moon Sequence, as taught at CBY, blends Matt Sweeney's Ashtanga Moon Sequence with a sprinkling of Doug Swenson's Sadhana Yoga Chi philosophy and wrist releases. This practice is generally therapeutic for the shoulders, wrists, knees, hips, and lower back.
