Back-Bending and Heart Opening Workshop With Nicole Rainey
“Learn to Live from Your Heart”
Who: All levels welcome.
When: February 21, 2015, 12-2pm
Pricing: $30 in advance; $35 at the door; $50/couple in advance; $55/couple at the door
In this workshop we will examine techniques for practicing backbends in a safe and effective way for students of all levels. Specific stretches “openers” will be taught for tight areas that tend to limit backbending including, the quadriceps, psoas, upper back and shoulders. We will also examine how to effectively align the body and breath in order to practice with minimal discomfort and maximum awareness. Long term intelligent work in these postures can contribute to building physical and psychological strength and confidence.
Why practice back-bends?
Stimulate the central nervous system
Increase mobility in the spinal column
Strengthen the spine and core
Open the lungs to receive more breath Boost the immune system
