Opening Meditation - 11 min. actually a 2 in 1 segment, you can sit in meditation or do the forward bends that she demonstrate : pachimotanasana , double pigeon + a twist variation, wide leg forward bend , all are held pretty long. it's actually great to finish a practice with this segment.
Foundation Sahaja - 22:20 min. a great relaxing flow , with a nice song from shaman's dream. includes some undulating the spine while sitting, in cat & cobra. forward bends, bow ,"sacred rolling" and more. very mellow.
Foundation Heart Flow - 20:41 min. - the beginning backbend practice. starts with usual shiva backbend prep. including half spits, kneeling bow, lunges etc. culminating in camel and bridge with a few variations (one legged, pigeon leg) and ends with a rather long sequence of counter twists and forward bends.
Foundation Standing - 24:50 min. - a long slow flow of basic standing poses (trikonasana, prasarita , warriors, goddess, tree , parsvotanasana and the rather advanced hand to big toe balance) although mellow I can see a certain challenge in this practice.
Prayer Wheel - 21:27 min. a low lunge sun salutation sequence . not much variation here excepts she adds standing half splits and twisted chair towards the end. very meditative but energizing.Read more ›
o Opening Meditation (11 min): A blend of forward bends and meditation. I'm not super flexible in forward bends, so I sat on a small pillow through part of it, coming out of the forward bends as needed. A very nice peaceful, quiet flow to connect you to the flow of your breath.
Three lunar practices are listed on the Matrix from simplest to more challenging. Each is approximately 20 minutes long.
o Foundation Sahaja: Shiva mentions Sahaja as being spontaneous arising, but another meaning is natural, simple, easy which describes this flow very well. Starts sitting with some gentle spinal waves, moving into slow cat/cow, then to downward dog. The flow includes low lunge, half splits, sphinx, cobra, Anahatasana, "sacred rolling", Janu Sirsasana, seated Parighasana, and Dhanurasana (Bow Pose). She uses slow, gentle pulses throughout the first part of the flow, adding in gentle twists for the second half. A lovely relaxing flow. Yummy.
I completed the next two flows using her Preset 2 practice, which adds the meditation at beginning, and Shavasana at the end.
o Foundation Heart Flow: A gentle backbending flow including cat/cow, half Chaturanga, cobra, downward dog, low lunge circling through to half splits, half Dhanurasana (bow) from all fours, full Dhanurasana, upward dog, Ustrasana (camel) - adding the more challenging poses as the flow builds through the first ¾ or so of the flow.Read more ›
