Focus: Tittibhasana is an arm balance that shares common ground with forward bends. This class heads in both the direction of arm balances and forward bends. To prepare for the arm balances you are guided through several standing poses where an emphasis is placed on using your arms to support your body weight.
From there you work with a set of three arm balances that help to strengthen wrists and develop the arm, chest and abdominal muscles. Tittibhasana and the related pose dwi hasta bhujasana are both explored in detail. The sequence finishes with the challenging forward bend kurmasana.
This energising class will help to improve overall body strength and flexibility.
