[Live Streamed] Getting Started and Comfortable with Shoulderstand, Plow and Basic Variations - The center for yoga of Seattle

Back Arching Poses are an important category of yoga postures. One of the best ways to start accessing these poses is to learn how to prepare the body in a supported manner.

We will be working on different variations of Upward Facing Bow (wheel pose) using a chair in various ways to gradually open the chest, prepare the thoracic/dorsal spine, open the groins and abdomen.
Everyone can learn how to practice this pose regardless of there shoulder and wrist flexibility if you learn how to use props effectively.

We will warm up with some of the classic Iyengar Yoga Standing Poses, some easier upward facing dog variations and may end with Viparita Karne, a mild supported inverted pose.

The workshop is open to all except those with back and neck issues.
The workshop is a good introduction to experiencing the Legendary Iyengar Yoga known for its Alignment, Precision, Attention to Detail, Sequencing, and Brilliant Uses of Props

The workshop si taught by one of the Northwest’s most experienced yoga teachers with over 3 decades of teaching experience!
