Duration: 60 min
Props: Blanket, Blocks
Enjoy the rolling and binding adventure of this alignment-based practice that will help you find the strength required for arm balancing. You’ll begin with a warm-up for your legs and then practice rolling from halasana (plow pose) into paschimottanasana (seated forward bend), and from a sukhasana (easy pose) variation into a halasana variation. You’ll also roll up and down your mat into malasana (garland pose) and uttanasana (standing forward bend).
After that, you’ll do a series of malasana and marichyasana binds to further strengthen your core for lolasana (pendant pose, with and without blocks), eka hasta bhujasana (leg over shoulder pose), dwi hasta bhujasana (two legs over arms pose), bhujapidasana (shoulder pressing pose), and bakasana (crane, with and without blocks).
You’ll conclude with chatush padasana (four footed pose) and a long hold in a supported bridge pose variation, followed by a well-earned savasana!
Have fun with this adventure in arm balancing!
