Yoga for the Whole Body with Kim Schwartz
Time & Location
About The Event
This three part online workshop will focus on three primary segments of the body through the tool of asana. The first segment will focus on the pelvic girdle (hip joints, sacrum etc.) and legs. We will explore how the organization of the pelvic girdle can affect the structure of the knees, ankles and feet, as well as how the pelvic girdle and legs helps to create the foundation for the spine.
The second segment, we will address the shoulders as the origin of the arms, wrists, elbows and hands, as well as helping to create the support for the neck and head. We will also explore how the shoulder girdle can affect the ribs, thoracic spine, neck and head both structurally and organically.
The third segment will address how the middle body can function as the interface between the pelvic and shoulder girdles. We will see how the middle body can try to compensate for challenges in the upper and/or lower body. We will also address the appropriateness for abdominal strength and visceral softness.
Though this workshop is available for everyone, long time practitioners and teachers may find this of particular interest.
Yoga mat, 2 blankets, 1 block, a folding chair, a 10-ft yoga belt, and wall space at least 2-1/2 ft wide
