This is the first of a series of two classes that lead you into a seated arm bind pose called marichyasana I (A), or pose dedicated to the sage marichi A. This class focuses on strengthening and stretching the key muscle groups that will prevent you from achieving the full pose if they are tight, such as the legs, back, hips and shoulders. The kind of rotation you need in the shoulder joint takes time to establish, so David devotes this class to beginning that release, so you are ready for the second class.

Loved this class! I was very sore from office work all week. This was perfect to work out all the kinks.

Excellent antidote to desk work

Thank you for this preparatory class! I’ll need to do it a few more times as I feel now how tight my upper shoulders and torso really is from working at a computer station all day. Thanks for this new class.

Lovely class - especially all the adjustment reminders. I've been having a yoga break exploring other modalities and this is just what I needed to ground, stretch and strenthen me back into yoga. I feel good after that!
