You can keep two blocks handy for the standing forward bends if you can not comfortably touch the floor. This class takes you through a warm up and poses that will stretch the backline of the body. This class is loosely based on the concept of Anatomy trains. We often think of bending forward as merely stretching the hamstrings, but there is a connected line of fascia that runs from the feet all the way up the back body. So when you bend forward, you are creating a stretch in this entire line. You will progressively work the way up to deeper forward bends and hipopeners. In this class you will practice Parsvottanasana, Uttanasana, Malasana, Janu Sirsasana, Paschimottanasana and more.
