Focus: Forward bend foundations. This class takes an in-depth look at forward bends. It covers an extended range of poses from the seated and forward bending group of asanas. In addition to consolidating forward bend foundations the class also introduces newer poses such as ardha baddha padma paschimottanasana. The class will be ideal for students who are less familiar with this asana. The basic foundations of each pose in the class are established initially in an upright seated position. Options for developing the pose in a forward bending direction are then explored. The class will be soothing for your nervous system and will help to improve mobility in muscle groups associated with your legs, hips and lower back.
