Focus: This class is based around improving hamstring flexibility. Standing forward bends like utthita hasta padangusthasana and urdhva prasarita eka padasana are the initial focus of the class. Eventually the seated forward bends triang mukhaikapada paschimottanasana and krounchasana are included in the sequence. The hamstring muscle group needs regular, dedicated attention in order for progress to be made. Improvements in this area can help to boost the health of your spine, and make more advanced yoga postures increasingly comfortable and accessible.
