Forward Bends – Weekly Advanced Class 129

Focus: Hamstring lengthening forward bends are the main focus of this class. Rather than working across the full spectrum of poses in the forward bend group, this class concentrates mainly on triang mukhaikapada paschimottanasana. In addition to lengthening hamstrings, this pose is explored in several variations that also help to improve mobility in your shins, knees and quadriceps. With the assistance of a chair the pose is developed in stages towards krounchasana, and eventually ubhaya padangusthasana. At the start of the class the standing forward bend parsvottanasana is used as a preparatory pose for the seated poses that follow.

Key Poses: Parsvottanasana, triang mukhaikapada paschimottanasana, krounchasana.

Equipment: Mat, chair, 2 blankets, 2 blocks, belt.
