Spinal Longevity | July 6-Class Online Series

July 9 - July 26

REGISTER HERE


In yoga, the spine is thought to be the primary pathway for the flow of consciousness. The spine has many beautiful names such as the Lustrous Channel, the Path of the Sun, the Pathway of God and the Radiant Channel. This month we practice lengthening the spine and filling it with the light of prana. We make the muscles that attach directly to the spine supple while making the vertebral ligaments and discs resilient and buoyant.

 

Please note all 6 live classes are scheduled for 9:00am – 10:30am MT:

Tues July 9 | Moving from Your Tail

If you think of a monkey, horse, or your four legged feline friend, the energy of the tail provides balance, support, agility and expression. In this class we unlock the bioenergetic forces of our tailbone in order to generate flow through the spine to the crown of the head.

Fri July 12 | The Sacred Sacrum

Like a rudder to a boat, the sacrum provides balance, agility and equilibrium to the entire spine. However, the rudder of the sacrum is typically slanted, twisted, dropped down or pulled upward. In this class we bring structural integrity to the sacrum and sacral-iliac joints in order to generate lift and glide along the entire spine.

Tues July 16| Stability in the Lumbar

There are very strong, strapping muscles that attach directly to the lumbar spine and all too often twisting, shearing or compressive forces pull the lumbar out of true. In this class we balance, fortify and tune the lumbar vertebrae.

Fri July 19 | Ease of Motion in the Thoracic

The upper back is prone to searing tension between the scapula, an aching tension that radiates up into the neck. In this class we mobilize the upper back and shoulders in order to support deep, rhythmic and relaxed breathing.

Tues July 23 | Centering the Cervical

Because the vertebrae of the neck are the most delicate, they are the most easily displaced of all vertebrae. In this class we generate ease in the uppermost spine by mobilizing the strong musculature in the back of the neck while simultaneously making the throat pouch flexible.

Fri July 26 | Having Eyes in the Back of your Skull

The bone at the back skull of your skull is a vestigial vertebrae. Called the occiput, it receives nerve signals from your eyes into your back brain. In this class, we visualize having the eyes in the back of our skull while exploring how the eyes are strong governors of spinal motion.

 

Cost: $100 + tax


  • Have your props handy! We recommend two blocks, blankets, a thick bolster, an 8’ or 10’ belt/strap, and a backless chair (modifications will be given if you do not have a chair). We recommend yogaoutlet.com and Manduka for props; backless chairs can be found on Amazon and Etsy.
  • We also strongly recommend having a physio ball on hand (or a tennis ball should do just fine as well!)
