Ankles and forearms – a journey towards forearm balance

This is a level 1 class, and can work for beginners.

 

We play with ankle mobility and strength in some creative low lunge transitions.

And we free the shoulders and also stabilise and strengthen them with various forearm-on-the-floor variations moving towards forearm stand (pincha mayurasana).

We balance this by opening side body and shoulders including a twisting / side opening trikonasana version, and wind down with a neck safe plough pose variation and viparita karani – a supported inversion.

 

Options and modifications are included.
