Focus: This weeks intermediate class will help to improve your parivrtta trikonasana. The tutorial style class is based entirely around this standing twist. The sequence covers all aspects of the pose. Initial variations in the first part of the class isolate key aspects of the pose. The foundation for the twisting action is established in your legs and pelvis before being developed into the upper torso. From there you use the wall to support the front, and then the back of your body. This helps you to explore the twisting aspect of the pose without needing to focus on balance. Eventually a reclining version of supta padangusthana helps to improve flexibility in muscle groups that can otherwise obstruct your access to parivrtta trikonasana.
