Introducing More Challenging Postures
Inversions are a key therapeutic posture of Hatha Yoga. They can be scary for some and contraindicated for others.

Seated forward folds can be extremely challenging for those with exceedingly tight hamstrings. This series will allow you to safely explore important postures of Hatha Yoga.
