Focus: In addition to some familiar poses, this class includes some less commonly practiced forward bends and seated poses. Several poses in the class share a common method of gripping your big toe with your fingers. This clasp is emphasised throughout the class. Poses may depend on it in order to maintain balance, chest opening or spinal lift. Don’t underestimate the strengthening effect this class will have on your hands and feet.
This class will also help to improve flexibility in your hamstrings, adductors and hips. Some of the more advanced poses such as kurmasana, akarna dhanurasana and krounchasana are presented in ways which will help to introduce newer students, whilst challenging more experienced students.
