We had a small class of the "hard cores" (as Wade called us), so he was psyched to beat us down with a fast paced Primary Series. The Primary Series (there is a Secondary, focused on backbends) and 3rd focused on "funky stuff", like handstands) is mainly focused on forward bends. You do a ton of vinyasas in btw the poses and even if you are feeling a bit lazy, I recommend doing them b/c they really help to reset the spine and counter act all the forward bending. Anyhow, we rocked and rolled thru sun salutations A and B right off the bat, doing this at home you might want to start and childs pose or some slower salutations to warm up a bit. After the fast paced, no nonsense sun salutations, you spend about 1/3 of the class standing, doing poses like triangle, twisted triangle, wide leg forward bend and variations. Then you move to the floor with seated poses like runners stretch, folded cobbler and seated forward bends and variations, and some ab work. Vinyasas in btw really keep you busy on the floor, especially if you throw in the push ups and even a hand stand here and there. Then the last bit of the class winds down, but with those killer lotus position lifts, you stay focused until the end. Very few twisting poses in this class. If you liked this class Wade recommends David Swenson Primary Series workout, you can Google to find it.
