In Class 2 in her series of 3 workouts Clare Dunphy Hemani pays extra attention to strengthening, opening up and straightening out your upper body. You'll burn through variations on the mat that progress into bigger movements as you flow. The last exercise uses a beanbag, you can substitute a pole or a broomstick if you don’t have one handy.
