– Supta Swastikasana

– Supta Baddha Konasana

– Adho Mukha Svanasana – hands on blocks

– Janu Sirsasana – first lifting the chest and then resting the head

– Pashimottanasana – head supported

– Setu Bandha – broad folded blankets under thoracic region

All the postures were enhanced by moving the breath in such a way that it deepened the experience of the pose; e.g, to increase height of chest, the front of the body use inhalation, exhale to release shoulder blades down the back.

In Setu Bandha as well as teaching about the vertical height in the chest, she taught us to move the breath into the inner side walls of the chest. She explained that Setu Bandha is an important pose in connecting the practice of asana and pranayama.
