Nourishing the Spine for Life Long Back Health | Online Workshops
March 24 - March 31
Your body is only as young as your spine is healthy: in this course you will learn the importance of maintaining health in your sacroiliac joints and lower back in order to maintain the stature of your spine. Tias will discuss the importance of lifting upward from the uppermost part of your spine at the junction of your neck and cranium. Learn how the musculature, ligaments, and tendinous slips that attach directly to your spine allow your intervertebral discs to stay buoyant. This allows the life force (prana) to flow effortlessly through the length of the spine.
Each day we must work our spine in order to keep it strong and supple. Given that there are 26 bones in the vertebral column and 48 interlocking joints, each of us must take time to mobilize and stabilize our spine. In this course you will learn the importance of balancing the spine and intervertebral spaces. You will gain an understanding of how your own spine may suffer compression, torque or rotation. Many of us suffer from spinal incongruities including lumbar compression, spondylolisthesis, spinal curvature, and sacral-iliac imbalance. It is a rare bird who has a perfectly aligned and balanced spine!
The Low Back
Know that your body is only as young as your lower spine is healthy. In this class we practice release work on the floor (SATYA) and in yoga postures, do twists, side-bends, backbends and forward bends to lengthen and align the lumbar. In this immersion we review the critical nerves, musculature, ligaments and inter-vertebral discs within the low back and sacrum. Plus, we activate the most critical acupressure points and marma points with the use of a small physioball or tennis ball. You will learn six essential movements to maintain health in your low back for longevity in your spine.
When: March 24 | 9:30am – 12:30pm Mountain Time | 4:30 – 7:30pm UK Time
The cervical spine is vulnerable to distress given its proximity to the head and distance from the floor. This can lead to a real pain in the neck! In this class we practice essential neck releases while on the floor (SATYA) and do yoga postures to generate stretch and flow through the soft tissues of the cervical spine. We activate the most critical acupressure points and marma points with the use of a small physioball or tennis ball. In the era of Zoom, come prepared to do specific movements to relax tension from the eyes. We take particular care to balance C1 and C2 and to achieve proper alignment and balance of the cranium. It is key to have your head on straight!
