Forward Bends and Twists – Weekly Intermediate Class 60

Focus: This weeks class guides you through a series of forward bends and twists. The class begins with some standing forwards bends that help to bring some elasticity to your muscles, and prepare you for the seated poses that follow. In this section of the class you are working dynamically, stepping in our out of the poses from dog pose.

The seated forward bend section of the sequence introduces krounchasana. Although often considered a more advanced forward bend, the pose is treated here in a way that will suit people with limited flexibility. The class then continues towards a comprehensive section on seated twists. Overall this will be a great class to help improve hamstring flexibility, and build momentum with spine releasing twists.
