Ardha Chandrasana & Parsvottanasana – Weekly Intermediate Class 72

Join To Start Course

Focus

The focus of this weeks intermediate class are the standing poses ardha chandrasana and parsvottanasana. Each asana is methodically broken down into stages where key aspects of the pose can be learnt in isolation. Eventually theses stages are recombined to result in an improved final position.

Ardha chandrasana is practiced initially with a focus on the standing leg, then then raised leg, and eventually the top arm. Finally all of these aspects are synchronised into the one continuous movement.  In parsvottanasana the namaskar arm action is introduced initially with your arms clasped behind your back. This is then developed to the baddha hastasana action with your arms folded behind your back, before eventually adding namaskar.
