Focus: Forward bends can initially be more challenging from a seated position. It is common to encounter more resistance in the muscles associated with the legs, hips and spine when sitting on the floor.
This 30 minute tutorial style class shows you how to approach forward bends from standing positions. Poses are chosen based on their ability to improve flexibility in muscle groups that are used in forward bends. Expect that this class will help to lengthen hamstrings and adductors. You will be guided in how to stretch these leg muscles whilst maintaining a supported spine.
Key Poses: Trikonasana, uttanasana, parsvottanasana, prasarita padottanasana, utthita hasta padangusthasana
