Twist’n’Lengthen: Back Strengthening and Spine Mobilising
When we backbend, we love to collapse in the lower back and squash the neck..because it makes us look like we’re going further. In twists, we love to spin the neck and throw the arm...because it makes us look like we’re going further. In this workshop we’re going to reign things in and begin to find evenness in the backbends, congruence in out twists, and strength in the muscles that are there to move us in these directions.
Instead of starting with contortion skills, we’ll start from the ground up, breaking down vinyasa and salutation technique, and you’l already begin using muscles you might not have felt before. The muscles will keep working as we ...continue to undulate through individual vertebrae, unlock our iPhone hunched upper back and neck and begin to move more dynamically thorough the spine in a strong vinyasa context. Before we neutralise our spine in a well deserved vinyasa, we’ll have a look at some deeper static poses along with exploring some deeper backbends like inverted staff pose, king pigeon and full dancers.
