Foundational Gentle Yoga Sequences Designed for Yoga Teachers
Gentle means not to force, and having said that, gentle yoga refers to the practice of yoga poses in a sequence which forms a gradual flow into the deeper aspect of the stretch to either gain flexibility, to recover from injury, for stress management and weight management, to reduce chronic conditions, and to go deeper with the connection of the breath and the body.
The opening of the joints plays a great role in gentle yoga and slowly one gains confidence and strength. The practice of gentle yoga is slow and each pose should be done for a longer duration to get maximum benefit.
The below yoga sequences are sample guides for yoga teachers to create their own gentle yoga sequences.
