Focus: This class explores links between hip opening poses like kurmasana and arm balancing poses like dwi hasta bhujasana and tittibhasana. In addition to demanding overall body strength these arm balances also require hip mobility. The ability to access hip movement can help to reduce the need for muscular effort when practicing arm balances. This can bring a sense of lightness and effortlessness to poses that might otherwise require brute strength. This class presents a novel way of looking at familiar poses from new perspective. It will help to build strength in your upper body, abdominals and legs whilst improving hip mobility.
