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

Hi David!
I am getting more flexible. I am patient and I will eventually reach the pose.
Thank you for the wonderful class

Wow, I've been doing staff pose wrong all these years and didn't even realize! This is why I love going back to beginner classes, they take the time to show you how to do a pose properly. Because it's so easy to do a practice and forget that each muscle has a specific job.

After computer problems yesterday - this was a great video today and trouble free.

Best one of this series so far! I like how David reminds us where to put the tension, where to relax.

I was able to follow and stretch to a point. I like what you said at the end about a matter of balance. I’ve been pushing myself a a little bit. My hips joints are looser, and I seem to be standing straighter. but I’ve been feeling an occasional muscle spasm between my torso and upper thigh. So I shall remember to not overdo it.
