October Self Care Saturday video review

Healthy Back Bends - Nov 10th Saturday Class

It's getting harder to get up in the morning, isn't it. I'm also noticing more lower back tension as the weather cools and the sky gets darker so much earlier. There's almost a frenzy in the air to stave off winter, like it's too soon to be cold! If you're feeling similar stuff, join me for November's Self Care Saturday on healthy back bends.

We'll focus on limbering up the spine in twists and side bends before moving into back strengthening and lengthening. I've found that the stronger and more stable our legs are, the more fluid and mobile our backs can be. It's pretty amazing how easy breath can be with a more flexible and easeful spine.

We'll even pull out some therapeutic yoga tools like the back-bender and the spinal strip! After all this, we'll feel much more comfortable, no matter what the season throws our way.

Class is scheduled for Nov 10th. We will review anatomy and kinesiology principles, then move through a two hour yoga practice that is accessible to all levels of experience. Lunch is provided as well.

Space is limited to six people. Please wear comfortable yoga clothes and bring your own yoga mat. I have any other props we will use.

Check out my YouTube channel for a short video review of this month's class - where we talked about the only constants, death and taxes. We also talked about how we're usually using our backs to move our arms, which is kinda inefficient. The more we can use our arms, the easier we can get into poses like headstand (which everyone in class did, even though they were a little worried about it). It was awesome.
