Standing Poses In 45 Minutes – Weekly Intermediate Class 22

Focus: This class is categorised as intermediate but will also suit experienced students. It contains most of the standing poses from this level and lets you consolidate them within a 45 minute practice. The class features the three twisting standing poses; parivrrta trikonasana, parivrtta ardha chandrasana and parivrtta parsvakonasana. For newer students this section of the class will be an ideal introduction to these poses, whilst for more experienced students it will be a good opportunity to consolidate and penetrate deeper.

Throughout the class you will be focussing on classic Iyengar techniques that assist with balance, weight distribution and chest opening. Standing poses are fundamental to a healthy practice. They are best learnt gradually, layer by layer, over a sustained period of time.

Key Poses: Parivrtta Trikinasana, Parivrtta Parsvakonasana, Parivrtta Ardha Chandrasana

Equipment: Mat, blanket, 2 blocks

    Rod, thank you for your lessons. I have difficulties to open old lessons, like 12-25 from the intermediate course. Are those lessons still available? Greetings Katya
