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: Marichyasana I: Full Pose.

Equipment: Block, Bolster
Style: Hatha Yoga

So happy I made myself do this today. Perfect.
As my husband says, do it and you'll never be sorry afterwards! So true :)

Oh, yeah. Spot on! I really enjoy David’s compulsiveness with the details. It makes a huge difference to be reminded everytime “tuck your tail bone in”.

David's classes continue to inspire me! He takes us through a series of gentle movements that actually require one to use a lot of strength (or as much strength as we can). I originally skipped this class because I thought is was an hour of marichyasana 1. This class has a wonderful full warm up that leads to the pose!
