5 Sensational yoga routines for beginners, Neil Keleher, Sensational Yoga Poses.

With Smart yogi MCP (muscle control and proprioception), you get 6 routines each focusing on a particular awareness or muscle control technique.

Proprioception is the ability to feel your body and how it's parts relate. The key to proprioception is muscle activation. If our muscles aren't working, then we aren't moving, and we aren't proprioceiving either.

Apart from allowing us to feel our bodies, muscles also help to keep your joints lubricated. Which kind of makes sense. If we didn't have muscles, we wouldn't be able to move. If we aren't able to move, then we don't need out joints lubricated!

Smart yogi MCP has been specifically designed to make it easy to learn to feel and control your body. It takes into account the challenges some students have learning to feel their body. And so, the routines are sequenced so that learning to feel your body, and control it, is easy, no matter what your current experience level.

All of these techniques have different benefits, and so even though one is taught before another, you can use all techniques interchangeably once you've learned them.

Being flexible isn't about forcing your body into whatever shape you are trying to achieve. It involves noticing how your body feels or is at any given moment in time and responding to what you feel. You then can move intelligently into the shape you are trying to achieve.

A variety of techniques for improving flexibility

If you are interested in improving flexibility, MCP includes the techniques that I've used to improve flexibility. Note that no single technique seems to work in all cases, and that's another benefit of the MCP approach. You learn a variety of techniques, and on any given day you can use the technique that feels best for helping you to improve the flexibility of a particular body part.

In the process, you'll also learn how to improve muscle strength. And underlying it all you'll learn to get a better feel for your body as well as a better understanding of how you can use it.

It's how I learned to deal with knee and hip pain

Some of the techniques used in smart yogi MCP are the same techniques that I've used to deal with various knee and hip problems.

This isn't a guarantee that this techniques here can fix all problems straight away. However, it can give you the tools for figuring out problems. And if your understanding of muscle control is good enough, you can then use it to work at fixing the problem.

Why learn muscle control and proprioception

Apart from improving flexibilty and dealing with pain, the main reason for focusing on muscle control and proprioception is that you can use them in any activity. And so another way you get improved flexibility is in your ability to use your body with awareness in any activity that you do.

A large portion of the exercises in this program focus on using your connection with the earth in different ways. Through this practice, you'll improve your awareness of touch (as well as your awareness of your muscles). And these are qualities that you can utilize in any physical activity.

What is mindfulness?

Mindfulness is another way of being present. You can also think of it as being in the flow or simply noticing what is happening now. A big advantage of being mindful is that it can lead to better performance. You notice what is happening as it happens, as a result, you can respond earlier and more effectively.

All of the exercises in the Smart Yogi MCP are instructed in such a way that you can easily be mindful while doing them. A key element for all exercises is moving smoothly and slowly. You can also find a rhythm in the exercises. That rhythm can vary from day to day, but when you play with the rhythm you may find that the exercises turn into moving meditations. You may find that they feel pleasant or at the very least they make it easier to stop thinking.

Explore your body

With Smart yogi MCP, you'll learn to feel your body and as a result, you may find that you can then start exploring your body. The exercises offer a simple means for you to explore your body and notice meaningful reference points. It's muscle activation and the associated connective tissue tension that gives you access to these reference points. From there you can begin to explore your body and that's what can make the Smart yogi approach interesting and engaging. It also makes it quite valuable since you are then learning to become your own teacher.
