Twisting Class

Students have been asking me for some sequences to use over the winter periods and while travelling. This class can range from 90 minutes to two hours depending on how long spent on the balance poses. I will write in some down levels and modifications. When I get a chance I will image these so there is a visual guide.

Intent: Work in a struggle-free way and bring a sense of freedom to the poses.
