Deepen and refine your backbends
Feb 13th 2020 @Twist Yoga
Join me for a practice designed to help you refine your backbends by focusing on the actions that will, strengthen your back, lengthen your spine and decompress your lower-back.
In this practice we will flow to open the front part of the body to eventually create a solid foundation for poses like Camel Pose and Wheel pose.
Back-bending with greater comfort will be one of the main goals in this class, so get ready to learn different modifications to create depth in your backbend practice.
Due to our daily activities lots of us will be habitually rounding our shoulders and backs with things like computer work, driving, texting, cycling, playing with kids etc.
In backbends we do the very opposite promoting a healthy spine, one of the reasons why they are so great!
Build Essential Strength for Inversions
What You Need to Know About
March 15th 11am - 12:15pm
Join me for a systematic approach to inversions, where we will break down some of the most popular inverted poses step by step.
Going upside down can be really scary for a lot of people, but inversions don’t have to be scary once you understand and learn how to prepare for and stay safe in an inverted yoga pose.
Gain a new perspective:
Inversions are postures that take you upside down, meaning they bring the hips higher than the heart and the heart higher than the head allowing you to obtain numerous benefits such as better balance, boost of energy, a sense of trust and confidence, stimulation of the lymphatic system, improvement of circulation and increase of focus.
There’s an inversion for every level in yoga, no matter where you are in your practice, in this master class you’ll be able to find and explore a way to get upside down safely and gain the benefits of an inversion.
