Can we do THE WHEEL for today's session?

Today( 24/07/09)'s session at The Empire Country Club,we did at the roofed veranda, just outside the room we usually use, ROOM 19 .which is now occupied and used for the Brunei Open -golf tournament.

And the focus for the session was on Twists & Backbend. It was actually a Student's request beforehand;so the menu was tailored.

She asked ' Can we do the wheel today" i answered " of course" ,and added 'it is like having meals at a restaurant , you ask for the menu , or TODAY'S SPECIAL??' ". i told her that you were not the only one; sometimes it's interesting that some students from the studio , especially old student would ask what's the class today or tommorow???" or 'what's the menu today??'

The chef would have to brainstorm for the juicy menu every now and then,and so do i.

Basically , the menu for the session today was ;-

opening for shoulder 1 & 2 with a chair - passive shoulder opener 1 & 2 in prone position ( downward dog stretch in between ) - cat & cat twist with downward dog in between ) - Eka Pada Bhekasan half forg leg ( stretch the thigh & hips flexors) - Sun Salutation - Sun Salutation with High Lunge add-on - open twist - half seated spinal twist - the bridge - The standing backbend heart-opening - The Wheel - Supine Spinal Twist - Shavasana

My favorite stretch - the wall dog , /chair dog to open up from fingers to toes

another favorite - the chair hang to stretch the shoulder and arms

unknown name a passive shoulder opener

unkonwn name a passive shoulder opener

legs , hips , thighs work together , to strengthen for backbending

High Lunge to awaken the power of the legs

Open twist from Aadil's tricks.

Half seated spinal twist after an open twist to get a deeper twist. hold each side for 2 minutes or so.

With the support , easy for some of them ,still stiff and tight in the shoulder to open and release

Standing Backbend heart -opening with the support of a chair

Yogic Food

Pure , organic & Wholesome - called Sattiv Diet in yoga

they use moutain rock salt ; ghee ,soya bean milk ; they cook & eat what is in season - veggies and fruit; they use wholemeal. all in all , the diet is simply delicious!!!!!!!!!!!!

it's unlike the usual indian cooking - hot & spicy , strong masala favour!!!

Yogi Belief;

A sattiv diet brings purity and calmness to the mind , and is both and nourishing to the body , it promotes cheerfulness , serenity and mental clarity , and helps to maintain mental poise and nerous equilibrium throughout the day

Think about it ! change your eating and diet habit , and see if any change in you

Basic ingrdents for the cooking


Dhauti , basti , net , trataka , nauli , Kapalbhati, are known as Sharkarma or the six cleansing technique process in HATHA YOGA
. Neti - nasal Cleansing with neti pot the night before practising Net , we were to put ghee into our noses, for lubricating purpose specially ,for first timer!!!after Neti was done, followed up with Kapalbhati breathing exercise .

Neti is a counteract the effect of pollution and dust. it is beneficial to people with asthma, allergies and other respiratory problems

Putting Ghee in the nose , looks disgusting and scary ya?????????

Master Cleansing - Shankaplsen

Not everyone enjoyed this one.It is a technique , begin with drinking with two glasses of warmth water ( mixture of lemon and salt ) , and carry on to perform 2 sets of 6 sequeced asanas - which designed to push the water forcefully into the disgestion system and do the cleasning jobs. after completing 2 sets , you need to drink another 2 glasses of water and continue again, you need to keep doing till you feel the urge to go to the toilet. The whole process ends till you see the clear water came out from the other end.it was quite physical exhausting . No sugar or sweet , glutinous food allow to eat , what we ate nothing quite like this - lentil porriage with ghee ,not just a bit but a full cup of ghee.

You got the special permission - YOU DO NOT - if you have menstration , stomach problem ,diarrea or low in the energy level.

Toast!!!!!let's begin now - Master Cleansing!!!!!!!!!!

Sequenced asanas performed after drinking

Free & Easy at Nasik
