Up Dog, Camel And Bridge Pose – Weekly Advanced Class 35

Join To Start Course

Focus

This class follows a classic backbend sequence. Initially you focus on energising inversions. From there you progress to standing poses that help to open your chest, and bring elasticity to your spine.

The backbend section of the class begins with urdhva mukha svanasana (upward facing dog pose). In this pose you will focus on accessing and lifting the central core of the body where the spine is positioned. From there ustrasana (camel pose) is explored in terms of how to best position your pelvis. Finally urdhva dhanurasana (bridge pose) is practiced in stages that gradually bring you deeper into the pose.

Key Poses

Urdhva mukha svanasana, ustrasana, urdvha dhanurasana

Equipment

Mat, bolster, 2 blankets, 2 blocks, belt
