In this playful class, you’ll work toward putting eka pada koundinyasana I and II (or variations of them) together in a flow.
You can do this class even if you’re working with a shoulder injury—there are plenty of hands-free poses and transitions to explore—and Carrie offers variations throughout so that you can customize this practice to fit your needs and goals.
Class begins with a seated and standing warm-up for your hips and shoulders. After that, you’ll play with moving from marichyasana l into eka pada koundinyasana ll and moving from a twist into eka pada koundinyasana l, before putting these poses together in a dynamic sequence.
In the final part of class, you’ll learn how to practice chair-supported versions of both arm balances before moving to the wall to conclude with a prop-supported child’s pose and several variations of viparita karani (legs up the wall).
