Hey yogis, this class is all about opening up your side body! Most of the posts will help you open up the entire area from the side of the neck all the way down into the ankles. We will also play around with quite a few balancing poses!
Many poses in yoga strengthen the obliques and IT band but we very rarely stretch these muscle groups which can become tight and overused. By unlocking and opening up the side body we can improve our posture and get a boost of energy. This is a wonderful class to do if you spend long hours working at a desk.
This is an intermediate level class that will play with poses like crescent moon, triangle, half moon, exhalted warrior and many variations of child’s pose, downward dog, tree pose and more to properly open up the side body.
While this is a class focusing on “stretch” and is a feel good flow, you can still expect to get a workout and put some effort into this practice! Have a block somewhere close by.
