Show Notes

Episode 59:

This is a 75 minute Level 1-2 class taught live. We begin with breath work, exploring a few of the many different ways that the diaphragm can shape the torso and support the spine. There is a focus on recovering or regaining the natural lumbar curve that has disappeared for so many people who sit a lot. We will also do a number of shoulder external rotation practices which will help reverse forward leaning shoulders and a tight chest which are the effects of holding your phone and looking down a lot! You will need two blankets, two blocks, and a loop-able strap.

We will make a double blanket roll or cylinder. We will use the looped strap around the forearms, and the two blocks will stack on top of one another to place your front foot on them during anjaneyasana.
