With an emphasis on warming the spine and shoulders in preparation for Urdva Dhanurasana (Wheel Pose), we find a fluid vinyasa pattern playing with inversions along the way. You will feel wide open and ready to ease into our peak posture.
Pushing up into wheel pose is my white whale....something I have been working to accomplish for a while. I always get stcuk on the crown of my head and just cannot make that final move into the full pose. I came pretty close today with this practice, though, so thank you for the tips! I will keep at it!
HI Catherine ! I love the "white whale" comment ;) and it's fitting, bc I often talk with my students about how (for many of us) wheel is one of those postures you have to really "earn"...it takes time, patience, perseverance, and most importantly~ enthusiasm! Happy practicing!
