Focus: Standing poses can leave you feeling energised, but are not always well suited to times when you are feeling tired or low in energy. They are not poses that naturally help to preserve energy. This class adapts a full sequence of standing poses so they can be more easily practiced during times of lower energy. A wall is used as a support in each of the standing poses to help improve balance and reduce muscular effort. This approach to practicing standing poses can also be therapeutic when practicing during hot summer days, or when recovering from illness.
