The distinction of this particular style of yoga lies in the intention of the practice ~ to create "core opening" by releasing tension in the deepest layers of the body, in the muscles that attach to the spine. Tension in these muscles tends to pull the spine out of alignment, creating the root cause of much of our physical discomfort.
As physical tensions diminish, you naturally enter into a state of ease and tranquility, both in your body and in your deeper Self.
In each session, you'll experience ways to take that ease with you in all that you do, as you learn to move and use your body in ways that decrease physical tension and reduce mental fatigue.
What you'll notice with every class...
With the first pose, breathing expands and moves more freely and completely.
Changes in the body travel from the inside out ~ bottom to top, front to back, side to side ~ affecting the spine through the sacrum, lower back, waist, rib cage, shoulders, neck, and skull.
As your body opens, your state of mind becomes more peaceful, centered, calm and uplifted.
The spinal release creates more space for the intervertebral discs and nerve roots, improving communication throughout the body's systems.
The core opening relieves compression of the internal organs, improving digestion, elimination
and reproductive function.
Reduced physical tension throughout the body enhances vitality and stamina.
Your emotional state shifts away from depression and anxiety towards compassion, contentment and joy.
