For this video assignment you had to create a workout routine. I am a yoga instructor, so I decided to provide a wind-down yoga routine. For me, yoga has been a big stress reliever. With my work and school schedule for myself and my daughter, I have slacked off a lot, so this routine is for the inflexible yogis out there. I know that there is a lot of people who have never done yoga, so I decided to take a few thumbnails to provide a few tips.
These poses are often used towards the end of a yoga sequence to wind the body down for meditation or rest. Some of these poses specifically have great health benefits. For example, Happy Baby resets the neurological system and even helps in digestion. Puppy pose, not only helps to stretch your hips and upper back, but it also helps to reduce insomnia. When doing these poses, aim to push yourself to your limit. Not what you see others do. If you can’t reach your toes, THAT’S FINE. If you can only lift an inch off the ground, GREAT. The last thing you want to do is injure yourself trying to do what your body is not ready for. In this video, I am no wear near 100%. I haven’t done yoga in weeks and my back was killing me. Those are the main reasons I decided to do the video. I owe it to myself to take care of ME. Just focus on your breathing and take it a step at a time. In all honesty, I would be happy to teach any one of you privately or answer any questions. I hope you all enjoy the video!
It took me sooooo long to upload this video. The application that came with my computer didn’t have all the features that I wanted so I downloaded Animotica. It does have a ton more features than what I was previously working with, but the export was such a hassle. Then Youtube wasn’t really working with me. Overall, it took about an hour and some change to get everything uploaded. I was so frustrated with the process that I didn’t even take snapshots of my process while editing.
