This workshop is meant to foster awareness of and bring mindful, gentle movements to the central and most important part of our anatomy: the spine. In the traditional yoga system, the masters believed that a supple and flexible spine translated directly to happy and healthy people. The spine is the centre of our anatomy, it literally holds us up through life and it is therefore critically important to take care of it.
“To know our spine is to know our entire body. To move our spine is to move our entire body. To release tension in the spine is to relax the entire body”.
This day long workshop is split into 2 parts with 1 hour break:
Part 1: Moving and freeing the spine
The first part is dedicated to exploring, moving, freeing and re-energising our spine with specific and safe movements and postures.
1 hour Break: Organic, vegetarian lunch with juice & vegan cake provided by studio 13.
Part 2: Restoring the spine.
The second part is about creating a real sense of well-being and calm using restorative yoga, pranayama, meditation and deep relaxation techniques.
