Adam Keen 45-Minute Ashtanga Class
Sometimes we don’t have enough time, energy or even motivation to do the practice we would ultimately like; our regular practice. This can often be a sticking point or stumbling-block to practice. We end up not knowing what to do, therefore, do nothing at all.
However, operating under the idea that any practice is a good practice, here is a short, guided-class, that gives you a suggestion of what you could do with 45 minutes whist still keep the integrity of the Ashtanga Yoga method as we know it.
In his characteristic manner, Adam leads the practice from the front, giving clear and concise instruction, whilst maintaining a non-dogmatic, experimental and individual-based approach.
The class covers what Adam considers to be the essential asanas, going through the full-range of openings that the practice provides. Namely, a little bit of strength-work, a safe approach to lotus and twists. In addition tackling inversions and the challenging middle-part of the series in a way that, with modifications offered, feels doable.
Based on the Primary Series and keeping the order that the asanas follow, the class may be helpful to all-levels, from those struggling with time and energy, to those simply in a rush one day and needing to get the work of their regular practice whilst lacking the time.
