Twists and Where They May Lead

Friday 6 – 8 pm
Sat 1 – 5 pm
Sun 1 – 5 pm

Twisting asana can be used to open the body for both back extensions and forward extensions. They also bring our mind out of the past and future and into the present moment. They change our perspective and challenge us. The twisting action purifies and tones our organic body, increasing vitality and the healthy function of our organs.

Join Carolyn for a weekend of exploring twisting postures as a means for unlocking the body, mind and spirit/consciousness. In each session we will use twists to explore all categories of poses including standing, seating, back extensions, forward extensions, inversions and abdominals.

Open to students with at least 6 months experience practicing Iyengar Yoga
