This class is transformative. Show up, roll out your mat and simply try your best.
ALIGNMENT NOTES +
- For Standing Splits try to keep the hips square. It’s not about how high the leg goes, it’s about how long and controlled the leg moves (there’s a great tutorial to watch inside the Studio library!).
- For your Warrior 2 (Virabhadrasana 2), your front knee is bent at 90-degrees, the knee is directly above the ankle and tracks over the toes, make sure it doesn’t sway in or out. Your back foot is on the Earth at a 45-degree angle and your press that foot away, strengthening the entire back leg, squeezing both booty cheeks. Your shoulders and hips are stacked, arms stretch out, parallel to the Earth.
