WORKSHOP: Spacious Side Body (Richmond, VA)
April 27, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
Don’t lean in, don’t lean out. Lean to the side.
Modern postural yoga and popular asana emphasizes powerful lengtheners for the front and back body. We also dwell in this front/back sagittal plane of movement most of the time in our daily lives. Break out of the mold in a practice designed to decompress, and create length and space in your side body and spine.
Side body lengthening can be powerful to relieve back pain, deepen twists and backbends, and allow for greater expansiveness in our lungs (more prana = more life force!). Sidebends recruit shoulder stabilizing muscles and deep core layers that you might not even know exist. This practice is a sweet invitation for more opening and buoyancy in our physical beings.
All levels welcome.
