Focus: Chair yoga sequence. A chair is the only prop used in this weeks class. A specific yoga chair is used in this video but many regular domestic chairs could also be utilised. A variety of poses are explored in the sequence but backbends are the main focus of the class. Poses that help to open your shoulders and chest are explored at the beginning of the sequence and back releasing twists at the end. Vrschikasana is the culmination of the backbend section. The class is particularly well suited to home yoga practitioners with limited access to yoga props. The chair helps to give you access to poses that might otherwise rely on specialised equipment or complicated set-ups.
Key Poses: Trikonasana, urdhva mukha svanasana, vrschikasana, chair bharadvajasana.
Equipment: Mat, chair, blanket.
