Dynamic layered exploration of different backbends, rich with details, using blocks to enhance our learning experience, supporting real change in our asana.
Dynamic vigorous sequencing that is both mentally and physically inspiring. Packed with unique alignments. Starting with a warm up through downward dogs, standing poses and shoulder openers, progressing into a fantastic exploration of the relationship between Parsvakonasana and Visvamitrasana, bringing lightness with handstands, and sun salutations interspersed with balancings and deep pigeon poses, culminating in a heart opening Sirsasana with excellent Virasana work, the teaching then takes us into forward bends, twists, shoulderstand, plough pose and some quietening hip releases before a guided Savasana.
Note: there is a tiny mistake in this class: a dyslexic moment on my part during voice-over. In the spirit of accepting imperfection, and because the teaching is (other than a 2 second blip) REALLY awesome, I’ve decided to post it anyways –but – anyone who listens hard enough to hear the mistake… please contact me and collect a free gift of your choice!
