SHINS & SHOULDER BLADES: STABILIZING THE BODY, BALANCING THE MIND
This energetic class will explore two areas of the body that are vital for building balance and stability. The shins and shoulder blades, each in their own way, can be used to direct and redirect the forces of weight and energy in standing poses, back bends, and inversions. As these forces are balanced, both our bodies and minds can be brought into a state of equipoise.
BREATH: A TWISTING, TURNING VOYAGE
This class will use restorative forward bends and twists to explore the landscape of the breath and to prepare for a pranayama practice that augments the power of concentration.
