WHY STANDING POSTURES?
Standing postures are believed to be the foundation of the Yoga asana (posture) practice. Standing postures build strength in the legs and core, encourage discipline and focus, and develop self-confidence through challenging the mind.
On the anatomical level, those postures also increase flexibility and range of movement in the legs and hips; this further prepares the body to attempt deeper seated and reclined forward folds and back bends.
Standing postures include also balance postures, some twists and some inversions. Understanding standing postures and the way they work is a key to progress in your practice!
Supporting our practice with props, observing and assisting each other while practicing in pairs and groups will help us to unpack those postures in detail and will allow a deep insight into how to finally do them right!Book Me In
