This blog is essentially 'sleeping'.

I've deleted or returned to draft 80% of the blog, gone are most, if not all, of the videos I posted of Pattabhi Jois, gone are most of the posts regarding my own practice as well as most of my practice videos in YouTube, other than those linked to my Vinyasa Yoga Practice Book).

Mostly I've just retained the 'Research' posts, those relating to Krishnamacharya in particular.

Simon Borg Olivier's 84 key postures course - Three ways to approach it.

This is the Appendix from yesterdays post, I wanted to give it a stand alone post to make it easier to find.

Nice to see this post on Janu Sirsasana from Simon Borg-Olivier (See below). I was watching and exploring in practice Simon's Janu Sirsasana instruction just yesterday, while following his new, and really quite excellent course '84 key postures for strength and flexibility' .

http://simonborgolivier.com/84-key-postures/


I'm quite excited by this course actually (see appendix below for more details of the course content), just the kind of thing I asked him for a while back after studying his spinal sequence videos on YouTube, how he would put his physiotherapists hat on and explain exactly what is going on in the body during a posture and why the transformational effect of the slightest tweak in our approach. Here in Janu Sirsasana it becomes a 'kidney stretch' rather than yet another hamstring stretch. And then he's teaching how to keep these postures safe for beginners or those with injuries or just different approaches for those with different intentions. Marvellous.

For me, following Krishnamacharya's suggestion to stay in certain key asana longer (although Simon is beginning to make me question why I would want to if the asana, or its variation, is practiced effectively enough), to practice with more efficiency and benefit without causing injury today or after ten years of practicing the posture in this way it's a godsend. My Ashtangi friends will also love this course I suspect, blog posts to come soon although I'm only ten videos in ( but also some skipping around as we can follow the order of the videos or jump to the asana we are particularly interested in -see appendix below) and there are another forty to go (videos seem to be around 10-30 minutes each).


Three ways to approach Simon Borg Olivier's 84 key postures course

1. Following the course presentation - recommended

3. By Ashtanga primary/intermediate series sequence ( I've included a concordance )

Intro video


 

There is something curious about this course, one of those glorious accidents perhaps. It's not Simon's normal format. I suspect but don't know for sure but I get the feeling Simon was invited to teach the asana element of a teacher training or perhaps just asked to teach a workshop on 84 postures. Either way, many of the participants in the course seem to be experienced practitioners, teachers or teacher trainees. This allows/encourages Simon to give perhaps more information than he perhaps would on a regular workshops. The amount of information he shares on the course, the detail he goes into, is quite astounding yet because it is demonstration based it's palatable on several levels. I suspect you could come back to this course again and again and discover things you missed the first eight times you watched/followed it.  

With the 84 posture format it would be excellent I'm sure for my Ashtangi friends and readers of the blog as well as for those also coming from Vinyasa Krama. Hopefully it will promote safer practice, for our bodies during practice tomorrow morning as well as ten years down the line, it should promote a more efficient, more beneficial practice

Three ways we might follow the course, see lists below.

3. Concordance with Ashtanga Primary and Intermediate asana 

UPDATE: I've added a concordance list between Ashtanga Primary/Intermediate series and the course videos to my post on Simon Borg-Olivier's new 84 key postures course.

Following the 'guidelines for practice' (videos 2-6 ) one might choose to watch one or two videos before getting on the mat and work the suggestions into practice of the related asana.

The videos 9a, 9b - 20, 21, 26 - 33a along with the practice guidelines would make for a safer approach to our practice of all standing and forward bending asana.

LIST 3. Concordance with Ashtanga Primary and Intermediate asana

Note: I haven't included the handful of related Advanced series asana that Simon mentions on the course - see the above list 8on blog post).

There are some question marks below beside certain asana especially in the second half of intermediate - It may be that some of these asana are mentioned in passing in relation to similar asana on other videos that I've missed (for example, I'm sure he mentioned kukkutasana in passing but need to find it again) - I  may update the list if I come across them or I may add links to posts in which Simon mentions these asana in his blog or on his Youtube channel E.G. Simon has posted several videos on Mayurasana.

A Reminder

from Kalama sutra, translation from the Pali by Bhikkhu Bodhi This blog included.

"So, as I said, Kalamas: 'Don't go by reports, by legends, by traditions, by scripture, by logical conjecture, by inference, by analogies, by agreement through pondering views, by probability, or by the thought, "This contemplative is our teacher." When you know for yourselves that, "These qualities are unskillful; these qualities are blameworthy; these qualities are criticized by the wise; these qualities, when adopted & carried out, lead to harm & to suffering" — then you should abandon them.' Thus was it said. And in reference to this was it said.

"Now, Kalamas, don't go by reports, by legends, by traditions, by scripture, by logical conjecture, by inference, by analogies, by agreement through pondering views, by probability, or by the thought, 'This contemplative is our teacher.' When you know for yourselves that, 'These qualities are skillful; these qualities are blameless; these qualities are praised by the wise; these qualities, when adopted & carried out, lead to welfare & to happiness' — then you should enter & remain in them. Buddha - Kalama Sutta
