In this short online yoga practice are both therapeutic and deep back lengthening postures from several different yoga traditions and healing modalities. All of us, regardless of our experience with asana, can benefit from this particular sequence and types of asana. For those with ongoing tension in the lower back, you will find sustained relief and postures that you practice more than once a day. This is not recommended for people suffering from severe or chronic back pain. Restorative and calming, Happy Healthy Backs is a deep practice for all levels.
The hips are our moving center, our actions and dharma in the world. This center is supported by a number of muscle groups that can be approached from all sorts of directions, held statically, or moved through in repetition. This engaging sequence uses a particular set of postures to help lubricate and free up this vital center while playfully challenging students to go deeper. You’ll break a sweat and feel more fluid and open by the time you collapse in savasana.
This profound side bending, lateral sequence of postures moves at a steady pace, allowing for a progression into an interior landscape of sensation, pulsation, and inner rhythm. It challenges practitioners to go beyond mindless, automatic yoga practices in order to experience the subtle levels of prana shakti – life force. Take as much time as your body requires when transitioning from one pose to the next, as this particular sequence will continue to generate profound unfolding, liberating internal movement and sensation beyond the pose itself. Chances are good you’ll sleep well when finished with this online yoga practice.
