Peak Pose: Visvamitrasana

with Jessica Stickler

Style: Hatha Yoga

Duration: 30 min

Intensity: Moderate

Props: Blocks, Strap

Class Description

Explore a short peak-pose practice that leads toward the arm balance visvamitrasana. The focus of this class is lengthening the sides of the body, opening the inner thighs and hips, rotating through the chest, and building a connection between the inner leg and shoulder while working to straighten the lifted leg.

Before practicing the classic version of visvamitrasana (which you'll do at the end), you'll explore visvamitrasana variations—one at the wall and one from seated.

Jessica recommends doing a brief warm-up of your own before you begin.
