Sunday 3:00pm – 5:30pm Pramayama for Back Care & Scoliosis …. De-Stress for the Holidays!! Sign up Here
The holidays can be a busy and stressful time of the year. Join Deborah to learn pranayama, yogic breathing practices, to help quiet your body and mind! The breath is both a primary and intrinsic aspect of yoga practice. With yoga for scoliosis, the breath is our first approach to the thoracic and lumbar concavities – our first real internal sense of those areas that are so difficult to feel. This opening of difficult to feel areas can help with all back pain, not just that associated with scoliotic patterns. Blanket and props will be used to support the curves and find ease.
Pranayama, the yogic breathing practices, practiced regularly, can provide as much or more support for your spine as the asana for helping work with your back issue and /or scoliosis. In this session, students will go beyond using the breath to support the concavities in asana to use practices such as ujay and viloma on their own to support the weaker areas of the spine, ribs, organs, and the entire physiological structure, as well as the mind and spirit.
Join Deborah to learn:
- How to sense the shape of your ribcage and how this tells you how to optimize the breath.
- How to optimally access the diaphragm
- How to control your breathing patterns so you can be calmer and experience less pain.
Deborah will present a sequence helpful for opening the lungs and supine pranayama practices with set-ups specifically geared to your curve(s), asymmetries, or other patterns.
