Standing Twists With Wall Support – Weekly Advanced Class 96

Focus: This class begins with a gradual progression towards pada hastasana. Initially pada gulphasana is practiced in both its final and concave spine positions. This leads towards padangusthasana, and then pada hastasana. From there the class progresses towards the three main standing twists. In this particular class the poses are practiced with the support of a wall. The wall helps to improve stability. It also gives you incremental control in terms of deepening the twisting action. It also provides a clear reference point for judging how far your torso is turning in the twist.

Key Poses: Pada hastasana, parivrtta trikonasana, parivrtta ardha chandrasana, parivrtta parsvakonasana.

Equipment: Mat, blanket, 2 blocks

Level: Advanced

Duration: 40 min
