Part 3. Getting to Know Our Spines


The third class in this series will explore spinal movements. 

This is a class for exploring all the ways you move your spine.  Exploring spinal movements is an important way of getting to know your own body and how it moves.  In this class you will be invited to find accessible ways to move in all directions in our spine.  How can you find more space and strength in forward-folding actions?  How can you find more length and support in backward moving spinal actions?  Moving the spine in all directions is needed – begin to find comfortable pathways in and out of flexion/extension/rotation and lateral bending in your spine so that this movement feels manageable, comfortable and stable.  You will explore these movements in cat/cow posture and standing forward folding postures.

Possible props needed (but if you do not have them, do not worry, you can still practice):

  • Yoga mat
  • Blanket
  • Possibly a chair (or the flat surface of a sofa or piece of furniture to lean on)

Please note: after being unlocked, this class remains viewable for 48 hours.
