Our bones and joints offer pathways for weight and force to travel through the body – allowing for movement and support at the same time.
In the first workshop we will learn the pathways in the spine, from the skull to the sacrum and tail. In the second workshop we will learn the pathways in the upper limbs and lower limbs, from hands and feet into the spine.
In both workshops we will explore simple movements to help find an internal sense of these pathways, and how these pathways might support an inner sense of alignment in asana.
