Small Group Yoga Classes in Milton Keynes & Bletchley

At Yoga Lily you will experience traditional, relaxing and invigorating Yoga as practiced in Asia for thousands of years at her home studio in Milton Keynes; it is a little more holistic in nature, meaning, it covers not just the physical aspects of yogic practice (like asanas or poses, mudras or locks), but also the meridian energy pathways, breathingmeditation and restorative yoga techniques sometimes lacking in the modern practice.

Good Morning Yoga Sequence

01/03/2018
How to do the Good Morning Yoga Sequence Yoga Classes in Milton Keynes & Bletchley with Yoga Lily. This is a 10-15 minute morning sequence designed to wake up the body and target all of the places that might need a little extra space and life breathed into them after a night of sleep. This is designed to be a flowing sequence, allowing one pose to flow into the next. I invite you to try it like this, or if that doesn’t work for you and you prefer to complete one pose at a time, guide yourself through it that way by returning to Downward Facing Dog in between each pose. Otherwise, just flow with it. Remember to repeat on both sides where appropriate. 1. Chest To Thighs With Interlaced Hands Chest To Thighs With Interlaced Hands – Stand at the back of your yoga mat with your feet together and carefully bow forward, hinging from your hips and not your low back. Reach your hands behind your back and interlace your fingers, pressing the palms together. Bend your knees and press your chest into and down your thighs, keeping your neck long. Hold for five breaths. 2. Suryasana, Sun Sequence Suryasana, Sun Sequence – With feet hip-distance apart, fold forward and place your hands on your elbows. Bring your torso toward the outside of the right leg and open your chest so that your left elbow points up toward the sky. Moving like a sundial, lead with your left elbow and slowly come up the right side, reaching up at the top and then continue to lower down the left side, keeping the chest open and the shoulders down. Repeat 3 times on each side. 3. Eka Pada Adho Mukha Svanasana, Raised Leg Downward Facing Dog Pose Eka Pada Adho Mukha Svanasana, Raised Leg Downward Facing Dog Pose – From Downward Facing Dog lift your right leg all the way up to the sky behind you. Keeping the arms very strong, bend your right knee and stack your right hip over your left, opening up the hip, groin and thigh. Gently press the left heel down into the earth, being mindful to keep that heel from splaying out to the side. 4. Utthan Pristhasana (variation), Twisting Lizard Pose Utthan Pristhasana (variation), Twisting Lizard Pose – Step your right foot to the outside of your right hand so that your right foot is closer to the right edge of the mat. Turn your toes out to a 45 degree angle. Keep the left knee lifted and press the thigh up towards the sky. Press down into the earth with the left hand and open the right arm up towards the sky. Stay here for at least five breaths. 5. Low Lunge Variation Low Lunge Variation – With your right toes pointing straight ahead and the outer edge of the right foot parallel to the outer edge of the mat, lower your left knee down to the earth. Place your hands on

Parivrtta Utkatasana, Revolved Chair Pose

23/02/2018
How to do Parivrtta Utkatasana, Revolved Chair Pose Yoga classes in Milton Keynes Parivrtta Utkatasana – Squatting is a powerful innate body posture that puts us in touch with our connection to the earth. In the Revolved Chair Pose version, twisting the upper body gives the abdominal muscles a massage, while the legs are strengthened. 1. Stand in Mountain Pose with the feet hip width apart. Inhale, extend the arms over the head and lengthen the spine. Exhale and fold forward with bent knees, bringing the chest forward and hands to the floor. Inhale, press down into the soles and lift the arms and chest forward, away from the thighs. Keep lifting the chest, extending through fingers until the spine and arms are parallel to the floor. 2. Lift the sitting bones up towards the ceiling. Breath smoothly and evenly as you establish a steady grounding through the heels. You will feel the thighs working hard. Lower the buttocks more toward the heels even has the arms and spine extend upward more. Lower the hands to the heart and press the palms together in prayer position. 3. On an exhalation, turn the chest toward the right and lean forward to wedge the left elbow at the outer right knee. Press the elbow into the knee, While at the same time press the knee back to the elbow to twist deeper. Keep the hands at the heart pressing the palms firmly together. The right knee forward to be level with the left. Feel a spiralling of the upper body from the sacrum upward. Turn the head to look over the right shoulder. Sit down more deeply into the buttocks. Move your body weight back slightly so that the knees are not forward of the toes – this will engage the powerful muscles of the upper thighs more deeply. Stay here for five breaths. 4. Release as you inhale, allowing the arms to lift you back up to stand in Mountain Pose. Repeat on the other side. Tips Gaze: Sideways or through the raised elbow to the ceiling Build-up Poses: Deep Forward Fold Chair Pose Revolved Triangle Pose Counter Poses: Mountain Pose Tree Pose Lighten: Bend the knees less Rest hands on the hip and knee of the side toward which you are turned. Effect: Invigorating   Parivrtta Utkatasana, Revolved Chair Pose Counter Poses In yoga we use a counter pose in a sequence; For example, a twist follows a backbend to “neutralise” the spine, or a forward bend follows a backbend to help lengthen the spine and calm the nervous system.    

What you’re saying

Myself and my wife Marylia started Lily’s classes on Monday evening 8 months ago, I found it very challenging at first but excellent and slept so well afterwards. Now we make sure we go every week and try not to miss a class. Marylia used to have back problems but since starting she has had no problems and is much more relaxed. Great class, just need time to be able to do more classes.
