If I weren't so convinced that the moon sequence by Matthew Sweeney is a perfect complement to my Ashtanga series, I wouldn't practice it. But I am convinced.
The series is without vinyasas, yet challenging. It lasts about 1 hour, herewith it's shorter than an Ashtanga series. It's a perfect series on moon days and yoga free days or on lazy days. Today it served as a preparation for the led class this afternoon.
The hips are the focus of the moon sequence mainly. It's a very balanced practice.
The pose on the picture is called eka hasta ustrasana B. It's one of the poses that challenge me. It can serve as a preparation for kapotasana.
For the rest of this year the moon sequence shall be enough. I won't even attempt to add the fire sequence by Matthew.
My body is ready for an intensive led class this late afternoon. It's still early. Fantastic.
