Please note:

  • The standing postures should take 55-60 minutes. The floor sequence is 25-30 minutes. Final savasana minimum 5 minutes.
  • The optional postures — those are for the teacher to decide, depending on number of students in class, number of beginners, different time of the day, class duration running late, amount of injuries present, how hot the room is, etc. Those variables must be evaluated and the sequence can be modified (as well as each posture) to the needs of the teacher and student group.
