Upward Dog in Surya Namaskar

This slow and mindful class combines the principles used in my Back care program and utilizes the understanding of the body as a Tensegrity structure. You will be guided to explore the myofascial (myo–muscle, fascial – relates to various kinds of connective tissue) interconnections between various parts of your body– for example, between your shoulders and pelvis, or between your pelvis/hips and feet.

Tap into the natural power of your breath, as a resource to self-regulate, cultivate mental focus and direct your intention towards the good. We play with many movement variations including some elements of the Tensegrity Series* to promote more freedom in all areas of our spine, flexibility, core connection, proper alignment and improved posture. Whether your pain is due to injury, surgery, repeated misalignment patterns, a work or sport related injury, chronic, or due to stress, you will benefit from this mindful approach to reconnect with your wholeness. You will be challenged to stretch your limits while learning in a safe way. Modifications will be offered to suit different abilities. Simple pranayamas and guided relaxation and meditation will be included.

*The Tensegrity Repair Series was developed by senior Vijnana Yoga teacher Gioia Irwin. It is a sequence of simple movements designed to rehydrate the body’s fascial system, to restore healthy range of motion to the hips, shoulders, and spine, especially if you have had surgery and after injuries. It tones and strengthens the core and brings more flexibility and function to the energy network of the body’s connective tissue system (muscles, fascia, tendons and ligaments).
