This workshop will stimulate the organs, intestines, and spine to create heat and encourage purification by using twists as part of a vinyasa flow practice. This process will help further your personal curiosity and foster a time of solace from the demands of your day. The practice will guide you through twists and bends to give extra attention to the places where you might feel stuck.
Twists rotate the spine and stretch the muscles of the back. This helps to restore and retain the spine’s natural range of motion. If we don’t employ our natural range of motion we run the risk of our joints hardening and fusing. By extending the muscles to their full length regularly with twists, we can help to prevent this.
In twists you work with the spine and the action of ‘lengthening’ is to create space between the vertebrae. When there is a lack of space our spine tends to slump or get stuck and our energy levels drop. Through twisting we lengthen the spine and get space between the bones thereby helping the energy to flow better. Twists give us an instant energy lift and decompress the vertebrae in a safe healthy way.
This workshop will encourage movement, incorporate breath work, and give you time to rest deeply before the week ahead. All workshops will include an active yoga practice, pranayama, guided meditation, and a restorative practice to leave students feeling deeply rested. All levels are welcome!
