Focus: The main focus of this class is forward bends, but it also contains inversions, twists, and an arm balancing pose. The class begins with some standing forward bends that help to lengthen your hamstrings. Headstand (sirsasana) is then included before a section of seated forward bends. The hip opening arkarna dhanurasana is then practiced before working with the strengthening arm balance eka hasta bhujasana. The twisting component of the class looks to develop the arm clasping actions of marichyasasa III and ardha matsyendrasana. Shoulderstand (sarvangasana) finishes the class. This challenging sequence contains a comprehensive cross section of poses. It will help to benefit many different regions of the body. The qualities of strength, balance and flexibility will all be cultivated.
