Focus: A wall can introduce new options into a home yoga practice. It is a prop that most people have access to, even if it involves moving some furniture or temporarily taking down a picture. This class features a back releasing sequence of poses that utilise a wall. It contains a series of standing poses and twists that alternate between having the front and back of the body supported by a wall. Using a wall in this way can help to bring stability, and freedom of movement to positions that might otherwise restrict spinal mobility. This approach can also help to preserve energy during times when you are fatigued or unwell.
Key Poses: Trikonasana, parsvakonasana, ardha chandrasana, parivrtta trikonasana.
Equipment: Mat, wall, chair, 2 blocks, blanket.
