Backbends – Weekly Advanced Class 115

Join To Start Course

Focus

This class features the backbends urdhva dhanurasana, dwi pada viparita dandasana, kapotasana and vrschikasana. Props such as yoga chairs, bolsters and belts are used throughout the class. Some preparatory stages of these poses are included in addition to more challenging variations of final positions. For experienced students who normally work directly to the final pose, it will be beneficial to return to some of these early stages as a way of refining technique and deepening understanding. Regularly returning to these poses over a sustained period of time introduces an element of spiral learning whereby new layers of meaning and insight are gradually revealed.

Key Poses

Virabhadrasana I, eka pada rajakapotasana, urdhva dhanurasana, kapotasana, vrschikasana.

Equipment

Mat, chair, 2 bolsters, 2 blankets, 2 blocks, belt.
