Class Description

Challenge your balance in this playful practice!

You’ll begin with a thorough warm-up for your hips and legs in order to prepare for the stability you’ll need for the balance part of the class.

After that, you’ll move into a step-by-step sequence where you’ll practice hopping from warrior ll to utthita hasta padangusthasana (extended hand to big toe pose) and vrksasana (tree pose) by pressing off the front foot.

In the final part of class, you’ll experiment with vasisthasana (side plank) variations to further test your balance, including a challenging chair version of the pose, and a bolster- and chair-supported variation.

Relax at the end with reclined twists and a chair-supported savasana.
