Duration: 45 min
In this abbreviated version of the Ashtanga intermediate series, Johnna prepares you for eka pada sirsasana (foot-behind-the-head pose) by drawing your attention to the chest- and hip-opening aspects of the poses that precede it in the series. You’ll warm up with surya A and B and the standing sequence, then practice the series’ postures through eka pada sirsasana.
Class concludes with a selection of poses from the finishing sequence: urdhva dhanurasana (wheel), chakrasana (backwards rolling), paschimottanasana (seated forward bend), lotus, and uplutihi (uplifting pose).
Enjoy this friendly, alignment-based approach to the practice!
