Shoulders And Twists – Weekly Advanced Class 26

Join To Start Course

Focus

This class begins with a focus on poses that improve flexibility and strength in your shoulders. Standing poses such as parsvottanasana and trikonasana are adapted to emphasise shoulder opening. Vasisthasana is used to help improve shoulder mobility and stability.

From there you head in the direction of twisting poses. You are guided through a variety of twists. In addition to standing and seated twists you also work with the twisted inversion parsva sirsasana. The latter part of the class then focusses on chair twists.

In addition to freeing up your shoulders, this class will also help to improve flexibility in your thoracic spine, and release tension from your lumbar spine.

Key Poses

vasisthasana, parsva sirsasana, chair twists

Equipment

mat, chair, bolster, 2 blankets, 2 blocks, belt
