Power Yoga Intermediate: Birds & Bugs (75 min) — with Mari Dickey
Arms • 1h 15m
Why Birds & Bugs? Well, In Sanskrit, a lot of arm balances in the yoga practice translate into names of birds and bugs – if you're curious about playing with arm balances, this is your class! Even if you’re not quite there yet, Mari offers plenty of prep for every pose so you’re already doing the work.
Flow, twist, and take flight in this intermediate power class focusing on hip openers and side-body strength.
This class uses a yoga mat and yoga blocks. If you don't have blocks at home, you can use a stiff pillow, a stack of books or anything similar you have around your home that is stable and supports you in the same way.
YYOGA Power is usually practiced in a room that is heated at 32 degrees, however this is not mandatory or necessary to get the most out of this class.
