In this video you’ll study several foundational postures aiming to better understand how to direct your efforts towards finding each posture’s particular strength sweet spot. You’ll explore Samasthiti (Equal Standing Pose) and work with raising your arms overhead against resistance that you create by imagining the surrounding atmosphere is thicker than air. You’ll experiment with exercises that help you look with the eyes of a strength connoisseur at other familiar positions such as Vrkshasana (Tree Pose), Plank and one-legged Plank. You’ll also study Chaturanga Dandasana (Four Limbed Staff Pose) by using several creative perspectives to better see this position as an important foundational strength posture. You’ll play with lowering your body onto blocks, jumping from 3th to 4th position in Surya Namaskara (Sun Salutation), and learning to hold your Chaturanga. You’ll begin the process of seeing how the foundational postures are your best, most effective and safest sources of strength.
