Awaken Your Core and Psoas for a Healthy Back 
The sanskrit word sankalpa means resolution or intention. 

The intention of this yoga class is  to help you strengthen your core muscles, so you relieve pain in your lower back, stand more upright, and feel confident, secure, and powerful. 

How Yoga Helps
Because of the integrative, total body involvement of most yoga asanas, yoga is an ideal practice to engage and strengthen the physical core. The wide array of poses also challenges the core in many different ways, through standing poses, balance poses, twists, domes, forward bends, and simple inversions.

Alignment also plays an important role in safe, effective core strengthening, making the refined alignment techniques a great match for careful core strengthening of the abs, psoas, and lower back muscles. 

There is a subtle and powerful connection between the diaphragm, psoas, and the lower back that energetically connects all the way down to your feet.

The Bandhas
The Sanskrit word “bandha” means bond or join. In yoga it refers to an action that grips and controls a part of the body to form a seal or a lock. Bandhas are practiced to contain and control prana (life-force energy) within the body. There are four main bandhas:

  • Mula bandha – a contraction of the perineum at the pelvic floor
  • Uddiyana bandha – a contraction of the abdomen into the ribcage
  • Jalandhara bandha – tucking the chin into the chest
  • Maha bandha – a combination of the above three bandhas performed simultaneously

Benefits include:

  • Upright posture
  • Pain relief in the lower back
  • Improvement in overall body alignment
  • Increased hip flexibility and movement
  • Increased lower core and abdominal strength
  • Increased balance and confidence
  • A sense of feeling connected, grounded, and safe
