Focus: This class is based around the standing twists parivrtta trikonasana and parivrtta parsvakonasana. Some additional preparatory variations and complimentary poses are also included. The sequence will help to unlock stiffness in the thoracic spine and improve mobility in the muscles, tendons and ligaments of the lower back. It will also be a great class for releasing tension throughout the whole body. Poses such as these will often be practiced in context with other standing poses or used as an entry point into a session of forward bends and seated twists. In addition to this it can also be beneficial to periodically practice standing twists in isolation from other pose groups. In this way they can be given your undivided attention. This class gives you the opportunity to delve deeper into the practice of standing twists.
