Event Navigation

[Live Streamed] Year End Yoga Retreat Live On Zoom! with Richard Schachtel - Center for yoga of Seattle

Experience a Twisting Focus Yoga Practice.

Learn how to put a practice together that emphasizes twisting poses. With a good sequence of poses, deeper poses are possible.

Twists in Iyengar Yoga come in a variety of forms from simple to complex, from symmetrical to asymmetrical and include forward bending, inverted, and sometimes backward extensions.

In general, twists help our general mobility, keep the spine well lubricated and nourished and can help in improving on the muscular imbalances that most people have on different sides of their body.

The key here is the choice of poses, the method of doing the poses, the order we are doing them and how much we are doing: classic Iyengar Yoga Methodology.

Join us for some gentle and deep releasing afternoon!
