Inside story on the creation of this video: One night, Leo, my 95 lb golden retriever, decided to sleep on my shoulder while my 85 lb. golden retriever, Romeo, pinned my feet down causing me to wake up with the pain that inspired this 45 minute all levels practice targeting neck and shoulder tension. You will need 2 blocks and a strap. Household items can be used as substitutes ~ a bathrobe belt and 2 large bath towels will work fine.
This video offers a balanced whole body workout while specifically targeting the hamstrings and low back. Often tight hamstrings contribute to low back pain. Allow your inhales to fill the tight areas with breath and your exhales to gradually release that tension.
This dynamic and energetic 60 minute intermediate level class first explores alignment principles with longer holds in traditional standing poses, then flows back through the same sequence of standing postures linking movement to breath, and ends with a few delightful stretches and a sweet savasana. This class is not recommended for beginners.
