Forrest Yoga Weekend: Free Your Spine + Assists

June 9 @ 10:00 am - 5:30 pm

Free Your Spine Asana Class 10:00am-12:00pm

Cost: $25

Our spine, back and neck muscles can sometimes feel like a reflection of our life – over worked, over burdened, and fragile. When pain in the body manifests and sticks around, it’s common to become frustrated and feel victimized. In order to heal our pain, we must begin to change our attitude and take a nurturing approach towards the areas that are crying for attention. Our breath is our number one line of support. Learning to breathe into pained places changes patterns of constriction and hardening into patterns of spaciousness and freedom. Layer by layer the shielding dissipates, making way for stuck tension and emotions to move.
