Surrender and Release: Anusara Heart opening and Back Bending
Surrender and Release: Anusara Yoga Heart opening and Back Bending with Nicole Roerick, 2nd Feb Friday, 11:00AM- 1:00AM
This special Anusara Yoga Heart opening and back bending workshop will focus on different ways to explore opening the chest, shoulders, hips, thighs, and more. We will work towards intermediate and advanced variations of heart and hip openers in a safe and aligned way using the techniques and alignment from Anusara Yoga.
We will look at each pose from the inside out and work from the principles of alignment to better serve our practice. We will work with the 3 A’s of Anusara Yoga: Attitude, Alignment, and Action. This series will also work on a mental and emotional level by tapping into these vulnerable areas of the body. Strong backbends can sometimes release stored emotions such as frustration, fear, anger, sadness, as well as joy and love. We will begin each practice by setting an intention to surrender and be open to transformation within ourselves and an invocation. We will find the goodness within ourselves and within each posture, we come to. This series is open to all levels and will be beneficial for everyone!
We will work towards variations of Urdhva Dhanurasana (Full Wheel), Eka Pada Rajakapotasana (King Pigeon), Ustrasana (Camel), Natarajasana (Dancer’s pose), and more!
