This practice safely and systematically builds toward the arm balance Grasshopper. One of you pointed out that we’d been preparing our hips so nicely this season that it could be a good opportunity to do this challenging pose. Grasshopper is a fairly deep hip opening (since it requires that you essentially step on your own upper arm), and it’s also a twist (with one leg crossing your body to rest on the arm) so we spend time warming into twists and hip openers before entering Grasshopper in two different ways. A couple of you have been asking for pranayama as well and this practice begins with two pranayama exercises. We do a one-minute handstand hold at the wall and finish with four backbends and the opportunity to walk feet up the wall to kickover. Stay in touch!
