Ardha Chandrasana In Stages – Weekly Intermediate Class 41

Focus: This class highlights the standing pose ardha chandrasana (half moon pose). The pose is explored with three different approaches. You are initially guided in the more traditional method of coming into the pose via trikonasana. From there a method of more directly stepping into the pose is highlighted. Eventually you look at the more challenging approach of using parsvakonasana to arrive in the pose.

Rather than holding poses for a long time, most of the poses in this sequence are treated dynamically. Poses are often repeated several times on the one side with shorter timings. Your breath is consciously linked to the action of coming in and out of poses.

In addition to the work on ardha chandrasana, you are also guided through other standing poses. Some gentle shoulder opening poses are also included in this all-round class.
