heart2This is a well rounded flow that can be followed as is for a Intermediate practice or each of the main asanas can be focused on without the deeper expressions for a basics class.It’s divided into sections. The standing poses come after the warm up and lead into navasana early on in the series instead of waiting later in the session. The first standing series is a warm up for the long standing sequences that follow in the Peak Energy Flow section. Kamatcarasana, a great feature pose, is achievable for most beginners and advanced students can take the hips high, and rotate the hand into full wheel pose. After the flow, there is some work for the anahta chakra with some backbends and chest openers. Cool Down and twists follow up the ending with Marichiyasana III and the option to bind for Marichiyasana I and a Baddha Konasana with some side switch flair before savasana.
