Practicing forward bends from a standing position can be an effective way of bypassing restrictions associated with stiff hips or knees. Whilst standing you will often have added freedom to mobilise your legs and arms. This can help to support your spine whilst in positions that target potentially stiff muscle groups such as the hamstrings and adductors. Techniques that help to improve your forward bends can be learnt initially in poses from the standing asana group. For this reason poses such as trikonasana, ardha chandrasana, parivrtta ardha chandrasana and virabhadrasana 3 are explored in this class within the context of forward bending. The class also includes classic standing forward bends such as padangusthasana and urdhva prasarita ekapadasana. click here to view Weekly Advanced Class 188
