Dropping Back – Weekly Advanced Class 56

Join To Start Course

Focus

This class will teach some of the techniques that will help you build towards dropping back into urdhva dhanurasana (wheel pose) from a standing position. Engaging your arm and leg muscles without shortening your spine is a common theme throughout the poses in the sequence. The class runs over 70 minutes long. This allows ample time to cover a wide range of backbends and techniques. Chairs, walls and other supports are used where needed to help explore this group of poses. The sequence also includes preparatory stages that will benefit students who may still be consolidating urdhva dhanurasana. More experienced students eventually work to enter this pose by walking their hands up and down a wall.

Key Poses

urdhva dhanurasana, ustrasana, viparita dandasana

Equipment

Mat, chair, bolster, 2 blankets, 2 blocks, belt
