Focus: The 50 minute duration of this class allows sufficient time to work through a full sequence of standing poses, whilst also building momentum with inversions.
Most of the standing poses from the intermediate level are included in this sequence. In trikonasana you will look at ways of creating space for your neck. In parsvakonasana the focus is more on your waist, and in virabhadrasana II attention is directed to your shoulders. In parivrtta trikonasana you seperate the regions of the pose that need to move from the parts that need to be still.
One of defining features of Iyengar Yoga is the way in which it can continually renew its approach to familiar poses. This class continues the ongoing process of learning standing poses with a sustained inquiry. A deeper understanding is gained gradually over time as new insights reveal themselves layer by layer.
