You'll work into the upper body (opening the upper back, chest, and side body) before moving deeper into the core of the body (focusing on pelvic and abdominal work). Then you'll learn techniques that will help you further mobilize and strengthen the entire back, including the shoulders and neck.
Before moving into restorative asanas and pranayama practices that conclude class, you'll learn how to relax any lingering tension by “jiggling” on your back. Before you start: Have a block, blanket, and bolster handy!
