Ashtanga 28/11/2020: Bhujapidasana (Arm-press pose)

Style: Ashtanga
Length: 90 minutes
Focus: Bhujapidasana (Arm press pose) Arm Balance
Props: Block and belt
Date Recorded: 28/11/2020
In this practise we focus on the hips and shoulders to prepare for the arm balance bhujapidasana (arm-press pose). Starting with some lizard sun salutations then some squat and eagle variations in the standing postures to work deeper into the hips and shoulders. Prepping with thread the needle and happy baby variations and some additional core work to target the adductors warm up the hips and thighs before breaking down the arm balance into stages. Finishing with some counter poses for the hips and groin before finishing with a supported bridge and a 10min savasana for deep rest.
