DETAILED PRESENTATION AND DISCUSSION AROUND THE WHOLE “MANDALA” OF THE SPINE + A MOVING PRACTICE WHERE WE PUT INTO PRACTICE SOME OF THE PRACTICAL ELEMENTS OF THE LEARNING
Although yoga does do lots of good, there are areas that can compromise the health of our spine if we come to the practice with a belief that what we do on the mat alone will fix everything.
I am sharing here with you some of the anatomical details of our spine, trying to break this down into bite size chunks so it is super easy to understand and show you how and why we need to take a slightly different approach to our practice. Both on and off the mat.
Learn More About Your Spine
This workshop is 3 hour long and includes a detailed presentation and discussion around the whole “mandala” of the spine.
In this, we talk about the health of the spine collectively, the natural curves, the unique nature of the vertabrae in each section of the spine, the health of our discs, and healthy movement patterns! We will the shape and size of our own bones, and take a moment to recognise that we each have a wonderful uniqueness in our skeletons. This learning then lends itself to a discussion around how we will inevitably all look different in some of our yoga shapes, and how that is ok! I talk about how to move the spine with ease in each of the directions that it moves, and why this is crucial to the health and longevity of our spine and discs.
It also includes a moving practice where we put into practice some of the practical elements of the learning. We explore together some drills and skills for strength and muscle isolation and activation that I sprinkle into my own classes, and aspects of spine mobility, stability, flexibility and nerve flossing.”
