This class is designed to address the issue of very tight hamstrings. When the hamstrings and inner thighs are stiff, they not only prevent functional hip bending and limit movement possibility in forward bending, but can also be the cause of (low) back pain. In this class, you will learn to isolate your hamstrings from your spine and strengthen the back muscles while stretching the hamstrings. With practice, this will relieve and even heal back pain and make your forward bending deeper and more enjoyable. With Cat stretches, Baddha Konasana, Viparita Karani, Salabhasana and more. Have one block and a belt handy for this class. For Hamstrings of Steel Part II, click here.
