“A Journey Towards Spinal Awareness and Health”
with Heidi Downen

Back to the Core is the second of a series of workshops dedicated to releasing and strengthening the spine.

 In many traditions and cultures the powerhouse of the body are the core muscles, as they sustain the trunk and enable us to hold an erect posture and have a healthy alignment.

The first workshop focused on release and lengthening the lower back; in this one Heidi will share kinesthetic awareness, poses (asanas) and breathing techniques (pranayama) to stabilize and strengthen the muscles that affect the mobility of the sacro-lumbar region of the spine.

These poses will help to improve poor postural habits and achieve greater freedom of movement, enabling you to feel stronger and healthier.

Suitable for beginners.

Props will be provided. You will need to bring  a hand towel.

Please eat a light lunch a few hours before you arrive.

Back to the Core

When: Sunday September 23rd from 1:30pm to 3:30pm. Please arrive 15 minutes early to fill out paper work if you have not taken a class at Bodysattva before.

Cost: $35 for members/existing students and early registration. $45 at the door. Sign up online or call the office. You may also pay Heidi directly at Venmo (@Heidi-Downen) if you wish.

For additional information please contact Heidi: (661) 755-4600  or e-mail.
