Forward Bends & Twists 90 Minute Sequence – Weekly Advanced Class 109

Focus: This class is the first in our series of longer duration 90 minute classes. This time frame allows sufficient time to fully explore a full range of poses. This particular class focuses on forward bends and twists. Basic forward bending themes are introduced initially in standing poses before being linked and developed in the main seated section of the class. Key forward bends such as janu sirsasana, paschimottanasana, triang mukhaikapada paschimottanasana, and upavista konasana are all included among other poses. Twists such as bharadvajasana and marichyasana III follow on from these poses. The class also includes a full range of inversions to offer a complete and balanced Iyengar Yoga sequence. It will be suited to times in your life when you have some space to focus and engage. This type of longer duration class, in addition to the existing classes in the growing video library gives you more options and flexibility in terms of developing your home yoga practice.
