Work up to bird of paradise, which is a really fun pose that's also a huge hamstring and IT band opener.

Lots of warm up and stretches leading to the main poses. Even though I couldn't do the full pose I still get a good work out.

I love the balance of learning this pose and getting a bit of a strength workout in your legs. Bird of Paradise is one of my favorite poses. Great set up for it!

I love how you remind us it is about the process in learning the pose and not necessarily about accomplishing the pose! It doesn't have to be "picture perfect".

Loved this sequence. I really enjoyed the scaffolding of this class to the final pose. My hamstrings are usually pretty tight and they have felt open and wonderful all day after this class. I'm so happy I chose to start my day with this!

I really enjoyed this class and Alexandria did an excellent job of adjusting your poses along the way to prepare you for the final pose - Bird of Paradise. I could only get up on one side, but it was my first time standing up in this pose! Thanks, Alexandria. I will continue to do this class until I can get up on both sides.
