Peak Pose: Scorpion

with Jessica Stickler

Style: Hatha Yoga

Duration: 15 min

Intensity: Moderate

Props: Chair, Strap

Class Description

This peak-pose sequence is designed to prepare you for a supported variation of scorpion pose, which you'll do at the wall.

Class begins with upper-body and back-body preparation, where you'll open and strengthen with the following poses: cow-face arms, locust pose (and a shoulder-opening locust pose variation), sphinx pose, forearm plank, dolphin pose, and a progressive practice of bow pose. After that, you'll stretch your quads and hip flexors with a reclining hero pose variation before moving to the wall for the peak-pose experience.

Be sure to prepare with a quick warm-up of your choice—a few sun salutations might do the trick!
