Focus: This weeks class links a number of the parivrtta (revolved) twisting poses. The twisting action is developed initially in utthita hasta padangusthasana and then incrementally applied to parivrtta ardha chandrasana. Two different versions of this pose are explored using the support of a wall. Parivrtta parsvakonasana is then introduced using a chair to both assist balance and gain extra leverage into the twist. The full pose is then practiced without support. From there the twisting action of parivrtta upavista konasana is improved with the use of a chair. This class will help to lengthen hamstrings and improve spinal mobility.
