Hi, sorry to read about your experience and yes those do sound like advanced poses. Would you be able to speak with the studio again about your experience? All the best with your practice.

Sounds like embryo-in-the-womb pose flowing to rooster pose, I guess ... not that I am flexible enough to do them.

I am nursing a stabilized torn meniscus and nowhere near that advanced. But I know what those poses are due to a previous studio's influence that has felt they take after Dharma Mittra, the 608-pose Master ... and took those Maha Sadhana-like classes all the time ...

I recently went to an arm balancing workshop at my studio and left with my tail between my legs. I have only been doing yoga since Jan. 4 this year, and I specifically asked if I would be able to do this. They said yeah no problem. Well when I got there the first pose she showed us was of her bringing her feet up over her head while crossed to the floor behind her head and then bringing her arms through her crossed legs. REALLY I thought to myself. To me this was a very advanced class and should have been posted as such. Then at the end of the class the one instructor wanted to demonstrate a specific pose and the other instructor said to her, why don't t you show them something they will get. I guess I'm wondering how advanced these poses are?
