A Practice for Mental Fatigue

with Michelle LaRue

Style: Iyengar

Duration: 45 min

Intensity: Low

Props: Blanket, Blocks, Chair

Class Description

This alignment-based restorative sequence is great for those days when your brain has been working too hard. All of the postures support the head, lending a feeling of calm throughout the entire body.

Begin with a blanket-supported adho mukha svanasana (downward facing dog), then move into a block-supported uttanasana (standing forward bend), a “prop of choice” supported prasarita padottanasana (wide-legged forward fold), and sirsasana (headstand) at the wall or in the middle of the room.

In the second part of the class, you’ll do a chair- and wall-supported backbend and a chair- and blanket-supported sarvangasana (shoulderstand) before concluding with two savasanas. The first savasana supports your head and back with lots of blankets and the second one uses less.
