Learn how to use mula bandha (root lock) to connect to your core foundation! This sequence is designed to help you strike a balance between mobility and stability with slow, steady, yet challenging movement. 

Jim will guide you skillfully through rounds of sun salute A and B, classic standing poses, and you'll work toward deep hip-opening postures such as malasana (squat), pigeon, full splits, and more.
