Peak Pose: Mandalasana (Headstand Variation)

with Jim Bennitt

Style: Vinyasa

Duration: 60 min

Intensity: Vigorous

Props: None

Class Description

Build up to mandalasana—a very challenging headstand-in-motion that requires a deep backbend. Begin with setting an intention for your practice, warm up with sun salutes, and then move into a sequence that includes balances, strengthening poses for the abdomen and arms, a headstand, and twists. You’ll approach the peak pose with a series of backbends and then follow the pose with restoring forward bends. The session concludes with a relaxation in shavasana and a seatedbhramari pranayama practice.
