In this Ashtanga practise we garner support from a trusty wall! This unassuming prop can help to strengthen, stabilise and deepen our postures. So the first part of this practise we flow through the sun salutations and standing postures, using the wall to re-affirm some fundamental postural alignment cues. We can also use the wall to support us as we relax, which is exactly what we do for the last part of the practise by giving our legs a well-deserved rest with some yin-style wall based postures to restore the legs and deepen stretches for the hips and hamstrings.
