Choreography to Seane Corn's dvd, Vinyasa Flow Yoga, Uniting Movement and Breath, Session I, Disc 2, Breath Session*

N.B. Keep your hands on Floor with Fingers Spread Out
N.N.B. One (1) breath or one (1) full breath refers to the full breath cycle of both Inhale and Exhale - use ujjayi breathing (breathe through the nose with your tongue curled up in your mouth)

I will make rough reference to musical movements or themes as Cues (since there are NO verbal movement cues provided--the music provides your only cues - I do not have a flexible, long goose-neck from a downward dog to the TV ... lol ), but you have to run through watching and looking at the list (and not doing the postures), the audio along with the visuals to follow at first.

In my own style, I actually identify the names of the poses (sometimes with Sanskrit translations attached). Seane Corn does not in either dvd supplied in Uniting Movement and Breath.

Sparkpeople is meant to educate even users of DVDs, so why not? This is yoga.

* Not perfectly synchronized, but I think it comes close.

A good review, but she does not really cover the breath session:

MY take on the 70-minute breath session is that it is a great transition out of "gym yoga" and into any vinyasa studio's offerings. I consider that this session falls under the rubric of "slow flow"; it only starts to introduce held postures as a challenge, and it is great for practitioners with challenged shoulders, as it is quite gentle.
