Based on principles of Chinese Medicine theory, this practice is crafted for summer and or anytime we need a boost of "expansion", to create space in our bodies or to tap into the playfulness of our practice. We'll work through the side body (wood element and meridians) to nourish the fire energy of summer and create space for the heart. This practice moves through some progressively more challenging variations of side plank. If you don't side plank you may learn or begin to see the shape differently through this practice or you may opt to skip this one (esp if you don't need to weight bare on the wrist). Because we're exploring side plank there are minimal chatarungas in this practice to help balance us. We'll also work side body strength and fun variations of half moon, "floating straddle" and balancing star.
Blocks are helpful but not required.
All levels but a regular practice is helpful for this class.
