This is the second in a 2-part series designed to move you into marichyasana I or A. Following on from what you learned in Marichyasana I: Strength and Stretch, this is a thorough, full-length hatha yoga class that will release the key muscle groups that need to be stretched in order to move into this wonderful, seated arm bind. The hamstrings, shoulders, back and hips are major areas of focus, as is a gentle, careful approach.

Equipment: Strap, Block
Style: Hatha Yoga

Yes, it's ideal to try to bring you back up straight, but it doesn't mean that you can't do the pose. The most important area to focus on is your pelvis/lower back. Create as much lift there as you can, as though you want to come onto the front edge of your sitting bones. Baby steps!

Oh my, I can sure tell the difference already with daily practice. The strap makes a big difference too. This was great!

Great practice! yesterday was odd/slightly difficult but today was so much better. I think for the first time I really felt my flow. The stretching was amazing I did poses I thought I couldn't. Cannot wait for tomorrow's practice.
