Focus: This class helps you to improve the mobility of your spine in forward bends. It begins with standing forward bends. A wall is used in this section of the class to help maintain a straight spine, whilst working with hamstring lengthening poses. From there the class heads towards seated forward bends. A chair is used in these poses to maximise the length of your spine, as you introduce twisting actions that encourage an improved range of motion. This approach towards forward bends will be helpful if you are practicing with stiffness in your spine, but will also benefit anyone wanting to improve the general mobility of this region of the body.
