Standing Poses With Supported Inversions – Weekly Advanced Class 128

Focus: Build strength, stability and balance with standing poses in this week’s advanced class. In addition to other poses, most of the main standing twists feature in this sequence. These poses require a fusion of spinal rotation in balance with movements from the whole body. The twisting motion in these poses benefits from a systematic approach. Each new movement and action builds upon the preceding one, allowing the pose to develop further. In addition to standing poses, supported inversions are also included in the sequence. A version of viparita dandasana is explored where a chair and bolsters create a support similar to a wooden “backbender”. Niralamba sarvangasana ensures a rejuvenating end to the sequence. 

Key Poses: Parivrtta trikonanasa, parivrtta ardha chandrasana, parivrrta parsvakonasana, viparita dandasana, niralamba sarvangasana.

Equipment: Mat, 2 chairs, 2 bolsters, 2 blankets, 3 blocks, belt.

Level: Advanced

    I find this space a very usefull tool, I enjoy the class very much.You’re so clear in every instruction that it’s easy to follow you.
    As a yoga teacher I also find the tool very usefull because you give many alternatives for those who canot reach easily the asanas.
    For me in this special moment we’re living at home, you’re a very nice company.
