Open Yoga 04.05.22 – Bring it BACK (a practice for acknowledging your back strength)


Ah our poor backs, they only ever get our attention when they are feeling sore, niggly or downright awful. But your beautiful back is just as interesting a place to explore movement as is your front.  It can be tricky to ’embodied’ our back body as we cannot even really see it.  In this class we will use a sense of our muscles to help us better understand the strength and stability our backs can provide us.

What to expect: a hatha inspired yoga class with optional flowing sequences, mindful strength and somatic movement explored and finishing with a trauma informed relaxation practice.

Suggested equipment:

  • Yoga mat
  • Medium strength resistance band (if available)
  • Two yoga bricks (or two hardcopy books)
  • A blanket
