Beautiful Backs! A Yoga Workshop

Guess what? It's time for our next yoga workshop! This time we turn our attention . . . backwards!

Our backs hold us together. They shoulder the load. They help us stand tall and face the world. But when they're not in good working order, they can be an endless source of pain and discomfort.

Strong, beautiful backs can be ours if we take care of them and move with awareness. Turns out yoga is a great way to do this!

In this workshop, we will:

  • discuss the basic anatomy of the back and the different things that can cause pain and restriction;
  • go through the underlying alignment theory to get us into the best positions to open those hips; and
  • dive into an amazing, all-levels, beautiful backs yoga sequence - beginners welcome!

You'll get heaps of tips to take with you to your home practice as well as to your regular classes. Register soon, as space is limited to 15 students!

Where: Healium.

When: Saturday, 10 August, 11.30 am to 1.30 pm - right after our regular Saturday morning yoga class.

How Much: $45: cash, EFTPOS or Internet Banking.

What: Beautiful backs!

Who: Jenifer Parker will be leading this workshop - that's me! I've been teaching yoga for 16 years now, specializing in alignment and therapeutic modifications. Currently, I'm learning how to fail spectacularly at parkour and roller derby.
