Focus: This class includes some less commonly practiced miscellaneous poses. Initially the balancing pose vasisthasana is practiced alongside trikonasana and ardha chandrasana. Parighasana is then paired with parivrtta trikonasana and parivrtta parsvakonasana. Parighasana is a great pose for teaching you how to rotate your chest and spine whilst maintaining space in your abdomen, and length through the sides of your torso. These actions will help to improve your standing twists. Sirsasana (headstand) using a “block tower” and chair sarvangasana are also included in the sequence. Some abdominal strengthening poses such as urdhva prasarita padasana close out the class.
