Day 8 begins with an exercise that shows you how to gain strength by creating a dynamic transition between Samasthiti (Equal Standing) and other standing postures. You’ll also work with 2 different looping exercises that will improve your strength, test your powers of concentration and bring skill in balance. The first loop consists of standing postures Uttitha Trikonasana (Extended Triangle Pose), Ardha Candrasaana (Half Moon Pose), Parivrtta Ardha Candrasana (Revolving Half Moon Pose) and Virabhadrasana III (Warrior). The second involves building up to a cycle of jumping into Bakasana from Downdog and then springing to Chaturanga Dandasana (Four Limb Staff Pose). You’ll complete the class by working with the learning progression for two formidable and fun arm balance strength postures that are found in second series Pincha Mayurasana (Feathered Peacock Pose) and Mayurasana (Peacock Pose).
