Twists, Core & Pranayama
workshop with Dirish Shaktidas
Saturday June 15th
Twisting poses help to restore our spine’s natural range of motion, cleanses our organs & stimulates circulation.
By learning how to incorporate a strong focus on the core, we can improve our balance and strength and provide stability for our overall well being.
We will be breaking down, discussing and working through the correct breath and movement for seated twists, standing twists, reclined twists and even an arm balance twist!
Some of these twists incorporate a bind, this helps to open through the shoulders intensifying the twist. I will show how to explore binds safely, using props where needed.
Finally, we will put it all together in a fun, challenging flow that will allow you to integrate and solidify what you have learnt into your everyday practice, bringing mindfulness with pranayama.
This workshop is suitable for both beginners and seasoned practitioners looking to deepen and refine their understanding.
