Challenge Overview

We've designed a new challenge for you: Jim Bennitt's 4-Part Advanced Series. This series of practices is a great opportunity to explore advanced poses, and each sequence includes an inspiring (you-can-do-it!) apex pose. Enjoy the process of working toward supta padmasana (reclined lotus pose), pincha mayurasana (forearmstand), padma sirsasana (lotus in headstand), and (eventually) the final apex pose, padma pincha mayurasana (lotus pose in forearmstand). As with previous challenges, we'll send each week's practice directly to your inbox. Sign up today!
