Standing Poses and Headstand Leg Variations – Weekly Advanced Class 43

Join To Start Course

Focus

This class follows a classic Iyengar Yoga approach to standing poses. The particular order of the poses in this sequence is commonly used, and is an ideal way to practice standing poses. Most of the asanas from the standing group are included in this class. They range from poses that strengthen, to ones that improve flexibility and balance, to back releasing twists.

After standing poses you head towards inversions. This class includes a number of the leg variations that stem from sirsasana (headstand). It is necessary to be able to free balance in headstand for a couple of these variations, but the majority of them can be performed with the support of a wall. From headstand you head to a supported chair sarvanagasana and then to savasana.
