Duration: 70 minutes
Emphasis: In this Sun Salutation based class we'll practice the two Gate Poses (Parighasana I and Parighasana II). Both of them strongly stretch the side of the torso, inviting space into the waist and between the ribs (these areas can get congested and squashed when we sit for long periods of time) and it will also stretch one leg whilst the other leg is bent. We'll do some other poses, such as Half Frog Pose (Ardha Bhekasana), a kneeling variation of Sugarcane Pose (Ardha Chandra Chapasana) and Revolved Half Hero Pose (Parivrtta Ardha Virasana) too.
Props needed: Two blocks or books for under your hands if your legs are tight, a strap or belt to help catch your foot, and a blanket to kneel on if required for padding, and for Savasana.
Mat direction: Short edge of the mat facing the screen.
