For the body to be healthy and balanced, strength and flexibility on their own are not enough. To be strong but rigid, or flexible but slack, is to be stuck in habitual movement patterns and vulnerable to injury.
In this weekend intensive, we will break through limitations by creating strength and flexibility in the full range of motion around the hips and shoulders to promote a strong, dynamic, poised, and adaptable body. The weekend’s sequence will include a little bit of everything in a complete practice: forward bends, back bends, standing poses, core work, inversions, restorative poses and pranayama. Take your practice to the next level with intelligent, targeted progressions to create power and fluidity.
