Get ready to play with Astavakrasana, aka eight angle pose: understand this fun arm balance, get your body ready for it, and try it!
This bundle includes the story of Astavakra, the sage who gave his name to the asana (with shadow puppets!!); two vinyasa flow practices, one aimed at preparing the upper body (core, arm, shoulders), and one for the hips; one practice to achieve Astavakrasana step by step, and the last one to go further with the posture, and move to fun transitions.
Playing with advanced asanas is a great way to challenge yourself in a fun way. It is the opportunity to step out of your comfort zone and enjoy the ride. “Astavakrasana does not necessarily require a lot of strength or flexibility, but it does require the kind of lift that comes from pulling oneself up by the heart string.” Alanna Kaivalya & Arjuna van der Kooij
This collection was filmed in Geneva, Switzerland. For more information about Claire Lalande see www.sunny-yoga.com
