Focus: Chair twists are great poses to help improve your spine mobility and back health. This shorter, tutorial style class focusses exclusively on chair twists. Initially these twists are adapted from classical standing poses. The use of the chair in these particular poses helps to improve your balance, whilst giving you more leverage to twist, and more incremental control as to how far your twist.
Eventually you use the chair for seated twists. Several versions of bharadvajasana are included. In addition to twisting your spine some of these seated twists will also help to improve mobility in your shoulders. Chair twists can be great for releasing tension from your back, but also your whole body.
