Awaken the Spine
The spine is the backbone of our yoga practice.
This workshop will take you safely into the depths of back bending and shoulderstand to ensure longevity in your practice and safety on the mat. Backbending is a way to strengthen all the muscles in your back body and legs, awaken the spine and light up the nervous system with stimulation.
Shoulderstand benefits are numerous affecting almost every system in the body including the musculoskeletal, nervous, endocrine, circulatory, respiratory, and digestive systems.
2008 was when Leigh’s interest in yoga shifted towards dedication. His love of the physical practice and passion for alignment drew him to study with teachers such as Noah Maze, Ross Rayburn, John Friend and Tara Judelle, while his creativity and fun-loving nature resonated with Les Leventhal’s Sequence Training and Shiva Rea’s Fluid Power Training with Simon Park. While working towards his 500hr RYT with Power Living and Tiffany Cruikshank he is also currently undertaking a 250 hour Traditional Yoga Studies course on yoga history and philosophy.
“The practice of yoga works at a physical, mental and emotional level & may be rewarding and challenging. We invite you to take care and participate to a level that you feel most comfortable.”
