Play with balance, open your quads and find your sweet spot in this challenging but accessible practice towards sugarcane pose, also known as ardha chandra chapasana. Inspired by lalita, the divine mother of the universe who wields a sugarcane bow and five rose tipped arrows, this vinyasa flow sequence teaches us to backbend with compassion and self-love.

Brilliant quad opening class and fabulous instruction as always. Andrea has the nack of giving us the cue to make the tiniest of modifications which really make a difference e.g. concentrating on lifting the pubic bone when doing a quad stretch to take it out of the lower back. Really made such a difference knowing these little changes as they can really improve the poses and feel it in just the right places. Another brilliantly accessible class from Andrea, even though the poses themselves are quite tricky. Thank you Andrea, more please!!!

This class is absolutely perfect. I have done it several times and this was my first time after an extended break from yoga. Thank you, Andrea!

Sugarcane has always been my favorite pose, but neither dancer nor the quad stretch in lizard have ever felt right. This practice made those two feel both challenging and comfortable in my body. And I loved how we started moving right away. Thank you!

I never knew a class could be challenging yet so sweet at the same time. As others have noticed, this preparation really made all the difference, and I was able to do sugarcane for the first time ever. I leave this class smiling. Thanks so much Andrea, you are a truly gifted teacher.
