August 14, 2021 – Zoom On! Yoga Class

Circling Back to Your Sacred Center

Pranayama:  This practice includes alternate nostril breathing designed to unblock trapped energy in the solar (pingala), lunar (ida), and sushumna (central) channels and backbends and twists, so we feel light and free. 

Asanas: Come join us for this awesome yoga practice and explore ways to attain backbends and twists, so to develop:

  • Elasticity and resilience in the spinal muscles
  • Extension and flexibility in the front of the abdomen, hips, and quadriceps
  • Flexibility, strength, and power in the shoulders, arms, and back
  • Energy, vitality, confidence, and free-flowing energy

Backbends (domes) and twists are essential to a well-balanced practice. Unfortunately most of us avoid these poses thinking they are beyond our capacity. 

B.K.S. Iyengar recommends we practice backbends and twists 3 times a week to counteract daily habits of sitting, driving, and being on the computer –  all of which puts our bodies in a constant state of flexion. 

The key to keeping the postures safe for the lower back is to practice with awareness, alignment, and gentleness. We incorporate the yoga yama, ahimsa  – (nonviolence = do no harm) so that we do not go too deep, too quickly –  into the postures.
