If you're having issues with the player:

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

Nice preparation to get to the pose, slight tightness in my hips made it a bit hard, but was able to clench my fingers together. We probably get better every time we do these routines. Thank you for the wise words at the end, it is so true that it is often a matter of balance and mostly letting go.

Balance in effort and release- on and off the mat. Great class.

Wonderful class. I did find that during the twist portion of the final pose that my sides muscles gave me a sharp pain and I had to pull out on both sides. I suppose this is a matter of conditioning, although I did wonder if I was twisting too far. In any case, I will continue to work on it. Thanks!

Continuation from part 1, helps to do these back-to-back for sure!
