an afternoon study of forward bends with Anneke Faas
In this workshop we will work on standing forward bends, sitting poses and forward extension in sitting poses. Forward bends bring extension to the spine and remove fatigue caused by other asanas, they tone the nervous system. Quieting the brain, cooling and soothing the body-mind complex are hallmarks of a forward bend practice.
Knowing the correct way of sitting and different movements of the knees, the forward extension becomes easier. Come discover how to bring the quiet back brain to your practice of these rich, calming asanas.
This workshop is open to Level 1 and 2 students with minimum of 6 months study of Iyengar Yoga – an important workshop for those level 1 students who want to “Step It Up” to Level 2 classes.
