Class Description: 

This is the first of a series of two classes that prepare you for a yin pose called snail, or karnapidasana. It's a yoga posture that requires a significant amount of flexibility in your back, particularly your lower back and neck, so it's important to progress toward it slowly and carefully. This is Satiya's special skill, and you'll find this yin yoga-like class to feel wonderfully delicious, rejuvenating and releasing for many parts of the body.

This class was a practice in patience. I typically like vinyasa classes. It was good for me to slow down and the hip stretches were excellent. Seems like there were a few poses where we only did one side for a long time and neglected the other side. I felt a little uneven. a good challenge nonetheless.

In its simplicity, it was quite a challenging class for me... It seems like my body was not used to work on these parts of my body. I feel like I need to do this class a few times again to get my body use to it. I enjoyed the challenged though. Thanks.
