Learn how to build pathways toward more complex or demanding poses.

Tuesdays 6:00-7:30pm, February 23 – March 30, 2021

8 Limbs Livestream

Gain clarity and increase the “do-ability” of poses to enhance your practice. This series breaks down and draws more understanding toward that which makes each pose unique and yet that which ties poses together. Each class in this 6-week series will zero in on a specific group of like poses (think cousins) – like Camel (Ustrasana) and Wheel (Urdvha Dhanurasana), for example. What needs to be opened and strengthened in order to do the pose? What are the key actions and biomechanics that allow for the fullest expression and accessibility of that pose? One pose will give rise to another and over time yield greater awareness and greater capacity to improve your postures.

There is no effort wasted here. You are actively building the pathway (like a neural pathway) bit by bit towards a more complex expression of the pose in your own time and in your unique way.

Please note the poses on this list may change and they won’t necessarily be in this order.

  • Vismatirasana (will include work on Surya Yantrasana as prep)
  • The Koundinyasana Sisters (Eka Pada Koundinyasana I and Eka Pada Koundinyasana II) or Parsva Bakasana and variations
  • Eka Pada Rajakopotasana I (foot to head var.) – will also include King Dancer as prep
  • Urdvha Mukha Svanasana (Handstand) Variations
  • Dvijasana (Bird of Paradise) will include other poses with binds as prep
  • Ustrasana (camel) variations including Ustrasana with Bhekasana leg also including Dhanurasana Variations

Recommended: at least 1 full year of consistent asana practice.

Suggested Props: 2 blocks, 1 strap, 1-2 blankets; OK to use household objects!
