Emphasis: In this class you'll prepare your body for Gomukhasana Pose. You'll start with Gomukhasana Pose to see how it feels without the preparatory work, then stretch the arms and shoulders in Balasana (Child's Pose), a variation of Anahatasana (Puppy Dog Pose) and Upavistha Yoga Mudrasana (Seated Yoga Seal Pose). You'll then work on the legs in Sucirandhrasana (Eye of the Needle Pose) and some lovely supine twists followed by Ardha Gomukhasana variation (Half Cow Face Pose variation). You'll do a final shoulder opener before setting up for the full Gomukhasana Pose once more, paying attention to how it (hopefully!) feels more available and spacious after all the preparation.
Props needed: A strap and two blocks or thick books.
Mat direction: Long side of the mat facing the screen so you can see more easily whilst lying down.
