Emphasis: After two rounds of Sun Salutation A you'll move into practising 7 different variations of Pyramid Pose (Parsvottanasana). This pose, sometimes known as Intense Side Stretch, strengthens the legs and stretches the hamstrings, calf muscles and the back. In some of the variations it stretches the front of the shoulders and the inner forearms and wrists too. You'll explore the variations progressively, stopping where you need to along the way so you don't overstretch or cause injury.
Props needed: Blocks or bricks to put under your hands.
Mat direction: Short edge of the mat facing the screen.
