Focus: This shorter, 25 minute tutorial style class looks at ways of building more advanced arm clasps into basic seated twists. The class revolves around the poses bharadavajasana, marichyasana III and ardha matsyendrasana. Each of these twists is practiced initially in their more preliminary form, and then with the addition of the arm clasping action. All movements are broken down into stages that progressively build towards a final position. Approaching this trio of poses in this way helps to deepen your experience of the twists, whilst bringing new shoulder opening actions to the poses.
