Warm up the spine with plenty of twists so you can get into dhanurasana, or bow pose, in this advanced beginners class. Recommended props: 2 blocks, 1 blanket, 1 strap

Love Melanies classes! This one felt great as a midday break stretching all the right places. Love the gentle but effective twist.

Melanie's instruction and cuing is always top notch. I enjoyed the way this class was programmed and found the bow/locust work really just snuck up on me. To me, that's an indication of smooth transitions and well selected "warm up" poses.

Be aware there is a lot of down dog so if you have unhappy wrists I would do a nice wrist warm up first. I might also do a little warm up before starting if you generally find that helpful. I warmed up pretty quickly here, but there's no specific warm up.
There IS a savasana at the end.

I really enjoyed this class. I am refinding my practice after starting a new job (with longer hours and less time for yoga). There is just something wonderful about twisting and backbends for relieving stress and finding peace.
