Virabhadrasana 3 & Parivrtta Upavista Konasana – Weekly Advanced Class 118

Focus: This class is centred around the poses virabhdrasana III and parivrtta upavista konasana. Several variations of virabhadrasana III are used as preparatory poses to lead towards forward bends. This pose is then developed towards parivrtta ardha chandrasana before heading towards seated forward bends. The sequence culminates with an extended exploration of parivrtta upavista konasana. This twisting forward bend is broken down into four distinct stages that gradually progress towards the final position. A belt is used in each stage to give you improved access to the pose. The class allows more experienced students the opportunity to take the pose further, whilst offering less experienced students the option to consolidate the basic actions.
