Focus: This class concentrates on three poses; pincha mayurasana, chatushpadasana and ardha halasana. Preparatory stages are revisited in pincha mayurasana for their ability to strengthen. Priority is given to creating lift through your shoulders. A rolled yoga mat under your elbows in the final pose helps with this. In chatushpadasana various supports and heights are used to maximise lift and opening in the thoracic spine and upper chest. The class then heads towards a version of halasana using a chair, and then finishes with the supported ardha halasana.
