This will be a friendly, heart-opening and rewarding 2 hours workshop intro a series of postures that will help you bend, balance, and bend better using a new kind of yoga strap the “Buddhi Straps”are buckle-free, hassle-free, and come in 4 different sizes to accommodate various levels of stiffness and flexibility
Binding requires flexibility and commitment, and act like a “lock” to help you find stability in a pose. In certain postures, it can also help us massage our muscles and internal organs, helping us become our very own healers.
Why balance? Balancing postures in yoga teach us how to focus, build strength, find our center of gravity and equilibrium. Trust, slow down, and find a sense of calm and stillness despite what is going on around us.
Why Bend? Backbends and heart opening poses are good to elongate the spine, improve posture and flexibility, stretch the front of the body, open up tight shoulders, reduce stress and anxiety, provide emotional release.
Some of the postures we will study include:
Dhanurasana (Bow pose)
Rajakapotasana (King Pigeon)
Kapuasana (Crescent moon)
Bharadvajasana (Seated warrior)
Vashistasana (Side plank)
Pavitra Suriya Yantrasana (compass pose)
