Wembley 1995 2nd Night part I – yoga setlist 1h 6 minutes

This is the first time I am creating a tool, for what is my vision for Daily Bon Jovi Yoga:
An outline to help you practice yoga by yourself.
Without a teacher, without a yoga studio, and even (ultimately) without YouTube yoga teachers.
And without this outline.

My dream for you is to move freely with the music, and do what feels good to you.

In my experience, the best way to go about it, is IF you want to use a guideline, to sequence groups of poses where you can easily go from one pose to another, without adding the noise of having to shift from standing to seated, and so on.

To do that, I have provided poses per group, that go well together.
And I ve tied a group to a song. You can move from one group or type of poses to the next with every new song.

How to use this yoga set list

This selection of poses I offer, will be constantly evolving. I have chosen names that you can Google.
Please send me a message through my Facebook page or @ me on Twitter, if you have found a pose that is unclear and doesn’t give a satisfying result in Google

If you’re new to yoga and do not know where to start, I recommend Yoga With Adriene on YouTube.
