Heart Opening with Anneriek
Next held on Sun, 22 Oct 2017 at 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
This enrollment runs from Sun 22 Oct 2017 - Mon 23 Oct 2017
There is this saying: ”Your spine is the window to your health”, Indicating that the condition of your spine provides a lot of information about your overall health. A healthy spine will help you to increase your overall health and help release the cause of physical issues including lower back, neck and shoulder pain. That’s why in this workshop your spine will be the central theme. You’ll be moving - twisting, forward and back bending - your body to open up and let energy flow through you.
Your spine does not work on it’s own though. Your neck, shoulders and hips are closely related to spinal movement. Stretching your front body in backbends, helps to open the shoulders, hips and heart area. Opening these areas energises you whereas forward bends (back stretches) allow you to ‘fall into yourself’ and calms you down. In this way, this practice will help you to feel energetically balanced. Twists ‘unravel your knots’ and provide most benefits for the spine, as long as they are performed with correct alignment. A combination of flowing sequences and longer (yin like) holds will be part of this practice.
This workshop promises to leave you with an amazing awakened feeling. Suitable for all levels.
Poses that will be explored include: Parivrrta Ardha Chandrasana (Revolved half moon), Ardha Matsyendrasana (Half lord of the fishes), Gomukhasana (Cow face), Ustrasana (Camel), (Urdhva) Dhanurasana (Bow/Wheel), Eka Pada Raj Kapotasana (King Pigeon), Natarajasana (Dancer)
