Focus: This class contains an assortment of poses covering most of the different pose categories. You begin working with poses that open your hips and glutes. From there you focus on some miscellaneous standing poses that are often overlooked in standing pose sequences. Garudasana is a great pose for improving your balance, as well as opening your shoulders. Utkatasana can help to strengthen your knees, and release your lower back. Parighasana is a great link between standing and seated poses.
The class then explores Surya Namaskar (sun salutations). You will be moving more dynamically through this section of the class. Standing poses are then linked with the salutes in a flowing sequence of movements. Some calming forward bends are then added to round off a class that explores the full spectrum of yoga poses.
