Let’s twist again. Yoga workshop for all

Saturday 25th February 2012  Begins 10.30am  finishes 4.00pm

A Yoga Nottingham workshop focusing on the benefits of twists – deeply soothing movements to keep the spine supple and strong. Yoga twists have a soaking and squeezing impact, the body’s organs are compressed during a twist, this pushes out toxins, as the twist is released fresh blood flows in. This is why twists are seen as detoxing as cleansing both for the mind and body. Twists also allow us to look at our Yoga practice and life from a different perspective – simply looking sideways allows us to reflect from a new angle. 

This Yoga Workshop will consists  of varied asanas, including seated, supine and standing twists (plus some inversions with gentle twists). Twists like forward bends, are soothing for the mind, body and heart, releasing mental and emotional blocks. Powerful and transformative  and essential to our Yoga practice. The workshop is aimed for all levels.

As with all aspects of Yoga you are encouraged to practice with respect to your body  and capability on the day. Safe and practical alternatives are always offered. Enjoy a fun filled, energising and uplifting workshop, clearing the cob-webs of the darker months as we step into the lighter time of the year.
