Our spines carry extraordinary combination of strength and flexibility. Bones protect the spinal cord and sensitive nerves while soft tissue allows the spine to flex, extend, bend laterally and rotate. Keeping your spine and the structures that support it healthy and supple is essential to staying agile and mobile as you age; and the opening backbends give you through the chest and belly has a profoundly revitalising effect on both body and mind. The best part is you don’t have to be a yogi to reap the benefits of these magical poses!
Your base in a backbend can vary from your feet, to your knees, to your belly, to the entire front of your legs, and when you’re all about that base, you free up the spine! Join Julie for a class that explores sound biomechanical principles to that will help spines of all ranges of motion to find movement and freedom in these delicious poses.
