We interrupt this staycation to bring you Focus on Form

It is the first Tuesday class after  being on vacation.  Yippee.

Another question on the junior  2 syllabus,  write a sequence that develops arm balances.

By the way,  the sequence I taught for Anna’s class went really well for padmasana.  A couple of her students got into the pose for the very first time.

Here is   sequence that  develops  Arm balances.   ( Also as  test  prep,  I’m also putting conditions that might need modification  below, though not the exact modification)

I am picking   Dwi Hasta Bhujasana as the target pose,  but I do think we’ll be prepped enough with all the groin opening and calf mashing for Tolasana to go well also,  and   those are the arm balances on my syllabus.

Arm balances need open groins,    engaged abds,  strong arms,  and a good sense of humor and an ability not to get frustrated with not having immediate success.

Also,  a new student Pria was asking about tight hamstrings so it will be a good time to also get at the hamstring groin connection.

Adho Mukha Virasana  with thighs belted,

Parsva Adho Mukha Virasana

Adho Mukha Virasana

Adho Mukha Svanasana without Support

Uttanasana working on not hitting calves back


Utthita hasta Padangushtasana



Ardha  Navasana


Baddha Konasana

Upavistha Konasana

Marichyasana I, twist only

Eka Hasta Bhujasana

Acarna Dhanurasana

Dwi Hasta Bhujasana




Eka Pada  Sarvangasana


Modifications to think about.     Knee pain in virasana, Bk or padmasana folding.     Ask about low back and sacrum.  There are a couple of  wrist issues in class, I’m bringing a few new props to play.  with,  Arm balances and abs not good for menstruation or pregnancy.  Shoulder issues in Eka Hasta and Dwi Hasta possible depending on who shows up.  .
