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

If this keeps going, I might actually get some mobility in my mid-back!

Wow, I would never have thought I could do that pose. Thank you for going slowly and safely, especially for us older bodies.

Fantastic! Thanks for the great instructions David. That last peak pose was tough but you prepared us well for it.

This followed on nicely and complimented yesterday's Mirichyasana II. As a beginner, and pretty stiff all over, I had no idea whether I could complete this pose or not but found the sequence strangely soothing and I could keep up. I felt I was able to sit up straigher, and my shoulders were much looser.
