This dynamic session will include flows to enhance the movement of energy through lower and upper body. Forward and back bending flows strengthen the back while enhancing movement of energy up the spine. Sustained backbends open the heart center. Pranayama (breathing practice) deepens the inward focus of mind. Join us, in the flow.
By moving slowly, to the flow of the breath, tension is released. A variety of postures will be included. Our closing series at the wall will encourage an inward focus of mind, in preparation for deep relaxation.
This session will begin at the wall with postures to increase flexibility in shoulders and legs while toning arms and back. Through gradual movement, flowing from one posture to the next, we gain fluidity and relaxation in body and mind. Sustained postures allow tension to release on deeper levels.
Yoga is a living science, one that has evolved over thousands of years. The beauty of this ancient tradition is that it changes every time you come to your mat. The focus in this workshop will be to balance strength and flexibility in the low back and hips. We will work with techniques to alleviate low back compression and tightness in the hips.
