Seated Forward Extensions – ‘Resting’ the Forehead (Experienced Beginner Level)
The quietening effect of forward extensions is due in part, to the restful condition of the forehead/ frontal brain. This session starts with preparation of the limbs, and also some time experimenting with what it means to ‘rest’ the forehead.
Level: Experienced Beginners
Props needed: a yoga strap, a couple of firm folded up blankets, access to a wall, other things like bolster/ chair depending on the condition of the practitioner
