Energising Forward Bends – Weekly Advanced Class 310

Join To Start Course


This class incorporates the use of a chair to improve your forward bends, fostering a more dynamic approach to this otherwise calming asana group. While traditionally these poses target the hips, groins, and hamstrings, the addition of a chair introduces chest-opening energy. The chair not only emphasises upper body involvement but also highlights and corrects stiffness or imbalances in muscles linked to the spine, rib cage, and shoulders. It also adds a back-releasing twist to each forward bend. The chair’s frame serves as a supportive tool, progressively aiding in the practice of key forward bends such as Janu Sirsasana, Triang Mukhaikapada Paschimottanasana, Upavistha Konasana, and Paschimottanasana.
