Ron Reid will break down each target pose to help you understand which areas you may need to open or strengthen and then how to combine them into a complete essence of the asana lab is to master the art of practicing and teaching intermediate and advanced arm balances, backbends, and hip openers. By providing anatomical context for your practice, you will be able to access deeper and stronger actions in your bodies that will be both grounding and stabilizing while providing the necessary means to move forward while minimizing the risk that can lead to injury.
