A workshop designed to release the pelvic area and strengthen the spine creating space and greater ability to move into beautiful backbends.
This workshop will incorporate a strong and dynamic full spectrum vinyasa practice with emphasis on moving within the full range of motion in the hips and exploring the freedom this allows to dive deeply and safely into backbends. The dynamic first half of the workshop will be followed by a slower and steadier dialogue with the body, returning to asanas for a greater length of time to work deeply into the hips, releasing tension in the spine to open up the space of the heart.
We will use the tools that yoga offers to work through resistance and open areas of tension. There will be pranayama (breathing techniques) integrated into the practice to explore greater depth and dance with awareness of the subtle body, especially as we move through twists and into stronger heart openers.
The workshop will include meditation, mantra, mudra and a deep relaxation.
Some experience recommended.
