This class will work toward an advanced posture called Visvamitrasana which takes a lot of openness in the hips and hamstrings. We will work our way through all of the component parts on the way to attempting the full pose. Whether or not you actually can get into the full expression of the pose doesn’t matter. An advanced practice is much more about breath and mindfulness than how beautiful the pose turns out. This is a sequence that will challenge and even perplex you at times so just remember to honor your own process. If done consciously, you are bound to be successful.
This pose will
- Open the side waist and torso
- Strengthen the upper body, wrists, and legs
- Stretch the outer hips and glutes
