Beginner Extension Course I – Class 1

Focus: This class groups together all the standing poses from the Basic Beginner courses. As well as looking at some of these familiar poses in a new light, you are introduced to a new standing pose called Virabhadrasana III. In addition to being energizing, standing poses are strengthening and help to correct imbalances in the body. They are stabilizing poses that help you to feel grounded and anchored in your feet. The preparation poses for headstand and handstand are explored in more detail. Be ready to practice these poses more regularly in each class.

Key Poses: All standing poses from the Basic Beginners Course, Virabhadrasana III, preparation for headstand and full arm balance.

Equipment: Mat, 2 blankets, bolster, 2 blocks, belt

    Hi Rod, I really enjoy doing yoga with you online.

    Today I heard the words “in this week’s class” that made me wonder: Are classes designed to be repeated for a week before going to the next?

    So far I was doing a new class everyday. (I am retired and have plenty of time to do yoga and I love it!). Thanks in advance and best regards. Namaste!
