Forward Bends with a Focus on the Inner Groin (Advanced)

Info

In this advanced class, we will be going through a wide range of standing and seated forward bends, focussing on opening up the inner groin in order to prepare the body for Padmasana and other high-level seated postures.

This well-rounded advanced level forward bend class will feature both standing and seated poses. The main focus will be directed at opening up the groin area. We will start off with some standing poses and move on to the seated portion of the class, which, apart from forward bends, will also include some seated twists and some more static poses, such as Siddhasana and Padmasana.

Guruji used to say that when you do an action, you should watch for the reaction. Then you will know what action needs to follow. However, we often skip the observation stage and thus miss a lot of information that could help us in our practice. This is why today, as we do the actions, we will be paying extra attention to the response within the body.
