Dharma Theme: Retrograde season, and the change of seasons, can leave us feeling stagnant. This practice encourages a lifted heart and looking forward even in times of reflection and release.
Physical Purpose: Core and twists to encourage detox and release, while building strength in the upper back and chest to keep our hearts and energy lifted and lead us into chatarunga, hop back, and crow. Belly backbends encourage the heart and upper chest to open, and sweet stretches to end.
Peak Pose: Chatarunga/ Hop back to Chatarunga, Crow.
