Sthira: A Short Practice of Long Holds

September 29, 2017    BY Jim Bennitt

Holding postures is a fantastic way to build tapas. Long holds can help us build a sense of stability that transfers into our everyday lives so that we can remain steady and unshaken during chaotic times. 

This 20-minute class features long holds in downward dog, plank pose, a variation of locust pose, half lord of the fishes, and more. 

Find your sthira (steadiness) through stillness. 

This class is part two of the Fire Up Your Practice: Tapas Challenge.
