Summer Intensive-Backbends, Forward Bends & Core
4-Part Summer Intensive
Part 3: Backbends, Forward Bends and Core
with Gabriel Halpern
Join Gabriel as he teaches sequences learned at the foot of the Master in Pune, India. If you have never been to the yogic motherland and had a chance to study with BKS Iyengar, a great way to experience his transmission is through the genius of his sequences. Poses put together with a theme can have a major impact on one’s experience. Rather than a random smorgasbord of postures, a carefully chosen process of unfolding conveys the message of yoga: harmony and skill in action, inner calm coupled with great clarity, compassion and the knowledge that love wins after all!
When the corners of the body (hips and shoulders) are more open, they can support the core and give length to the front of the body which is essential for forward folding. This, and many other concepts will be explored in this week's intensive.
