Forward Bends in 45 Minutes – Weekly Intermediate Class 143

Join To Start Course


A quick and easy practice to help you improve your forward bends. This class revisits and consolidates some of the ardha baddha padma paschimottanasana knee variations from last week and puts them in context with a broader range of forward bends. These two classes compliment one another and can be practiced in tandem. A supported version of the reclining kneeling pose supta virasana is taught at the beginning of this class. The pose is approached in a way that will suit students who are less familiar with this pose or working with restricted mobility. The remainder of the class uses minimal props. This convenient shorter duration class will help you to be able to build momentum with your forward bends at times when you have a busy schedule.

Key Poses

Sukkhasana, janu sirsasana, ardha baddha padma paschimottanasana, triang mukhaikapada paschimottanasana.


Mat, 2 bolsters (optional), 2 blankets, 2 blocks, belt.
