Moonbeam - a ray of light from the moon...

What, you ask, does the title of this post have to do with yoga? Well, actually, a lot. I used a "Moon Series" of poses taken from Yoga for Movement Disorders in my class this week. Moon poses are similar to the seated sun salutations that we have been doing in that the poses are done in a continuous flowing sequence. Although there are many variations on the moon series, this particular version suited our class well.

Moon series - seated variation:
1. Seated mountain pose
2. Crescent moon
3. Goddess
4. Seated Forward Bend with Twist
5. Seated Hamstring Stretch
6. Goddess
7. Crescent moon
