Student question: With my busy schedule, I only have twenty minutes to practice each day. Is there anything you can suggest?

I thought about this question while I was in India.  During a Q&A session, Abhijata talked about how we have to touch the standing poses, in our practice, everyday.  Standing poses are the foundation for all other asanas. However, it is important to create a well-rounded practice that incorporates different categories of asana (i.e. forward bending, back-bending, inversions, twists.)
To help you in your practice, I have attached Iyengar yoga sequences from the Iyengar Yoga National Association of the United States (IYNAUS) and a 20 minute yoga sequence created by Carolyn Belko of the Iyengar Yoga Center of North County, CA.

  2. This is my plight. I have a family and full-time job, which has me teaching rudimentary yoga classes to my after school class one afternoon per week. Personal time is nonexistent and I rarely have time for a full yoga session. I’ll try your resources and see if anything gets me on the path I’m looking for. Thanks!
