Relax and release: Side bending practice

Have two blocks handy if you have shorter hamstrings and cannot touch the floor with both legs straight. This class will lead you through a series of hamstring and inner thigh stretches and side bending to get into, and release, tightness or painful spots in your body. After a more dynamic warm up, you will hold the poses for a longer time. This longer hold will give the connective tissue in your body more time to stretch. In addition to a longer hold, we will use the "strain - counterstrain release"  technique that uses imbalances in your body to release strain in your left and right sides. With Prasarita Padottanasana, Trikonasana, Janu Sirsasana, Upavista Konasana
