Focus: This backbend class works with variations of the poses kapotasana and urdhva dhanurasana. Both poses are approached from the perspective of “dropping back”. A wall is used as a support for your hands to walk in both a downward and upward direction. This gives you incremental control in terms of coming in and out of the pose, and gradually prepares you for eventually working independently without supports. This class has been released in tandem with the back releasing Intermediate Class 102. The two classes can be practiced one after the other if time permits.
Key Poses: Ustrasana, kapotasana, urdhva dhanurasana.
Equipment: Mat, chair, bolster, blanket, 2 blocks.
Duration: 50 min
