Backbends And Inversions – Weekly Intermediate Class 29

Join To Start Course

Focus

Improve your backbends, inversions and standing poses simultaneously. This energising class links together several different groups of poses. The sequence starts with some strengthening variations of headstand and handstand. From there you work quickly through some standing poses, stepping in and out of each pose from dog pose.

Backbends feature in the last section of the class. Here you focus on urdhva mukha svanasana (up dog) and ustrasana (camel pose). Both of these poses are practiced with and without supports. Finally urdhva dhanurasana is practiced in the latter part of the class. In order to fully utilise the upper part of your back this pose is taught initially reclining over the frame of a chair. Expect that this class will be energising and strengthening.
