This session is part of the Short Course referenced under.  Although each session in this Course cane be done as a stand-alone session, to get a good understanding of how to link independent positions to supported positions, use of props, we recommend doing all the sessions in the Course in the order in which they are listed under.

This Short Course leads to deeply restorative and rejuvinative positions that are full y supported by two bolsters placed perpendicular to each other. We call them ‘cross bolsters’. Supported position are a boon to people with limitations, and preferable in certain conditions even for otherwise physically able people. But to fully appreciate these supported positions, it is important to understand the classical asanas from where they have been derived. In this session, we look at two such asanas: Purvottanasana and Viparita dandasana
