Upavista Konasana is a wide-legged seated forward bend with several variations for opening the hips, hamstrings, inner thighs and lateral torso. This week we will continue our exploration of forward bends through a standing pose sequence ending with this deeply releasing forward bend, all while keeping the lower back structurally sound and aiming for an attitude of surrender.

I attend Cheryl's class regularly and feel that my practice has improved immensely over the past few years due to her expert coaching. Her teaching style is clear and compassionate and her previous experience in teaching adults is evident in her organized approach and easy to understand instructions. I also appreciate that Cheryl not only teaches us about how to correctly position ourselves, but also touches on many aspects of yoga philosophy, which in turn has deepened my personal practice and heightened my awareness of the connection between mind and body, breath and relaxation.
