What you will learn:

  • Basic structure and function of the spine

In this practical webinar, we will explore the basic bio-mechanic principles in relation to the movements of the spine, and will define and explain the releasing and stabilizing techniques of the spine. We will understand the reasons behind the sequence of the asanas we practice and how it can support our health.

In this workshop-style webinar, we’ll experience the range of simple movements in different areas of the spine in order to develop more awareness of the spine and its movements. We then will explore some of the preparatory (warm-up) exercises and some of the main asanas in relation to releasing & stabilizing techniques. In the end, we will use this practical understanding to keep our spine healthier.
