Open Yoga 10.02.21 – Spinal rotation with whole body integration


This week’s Open Yoga class is our final in our postural exploration: beginning to find ways of better supporting our functional posture.  In this class we explore the movement of spinal rotation.  This movement in the spine is a movement that is common to experience when doing ‘twisting’ yoga postures.  Twisting sounds wrong – it’s doesn’t exactly get at what’s happening in the body when we make these shapes.  We’ll explore how rotations can follow along the pathway of other spirallic actions in the body, from feet to head.  Moving in a way to feels less about ‘twisting it out’ and more about easing into more rotational space.
