The encasement sequence is a unique kind of sequence where the first pose is the last pose, the second pose is the second to the last pose, and so on, with a “peak” pose in the middle. I often use it at the end of the eight week session as a quieter more restorative kind of sequence. Hold each pose 3-8 minutes, depending on your ability and time.
The sequence starts with swastikasana, supported at the wall, legs supported with a long skinny blanket placed between the shins and feet.
