This sequence aims to take the experienced student through a wide range of forward bends in what could be called a ‘classical’ progression.
Forward bends bring life to the hips, knees and upper back and neck, and they also calm the nervous system and lead us into a reflective, quiet state of mind. Each pose brings us deeper into mental stillness as we go through the session, even as it works quite strongly into the hips, knees, and upper back.
