Summer Intensive- Inversions and Twists
4-Part Summer Intensive
Part 4: Backbends, Inversions and Twists
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!
Oncd the ability to isolate the legs in the hip sockets becomes available, the shoulders do not have to do all the work for inversions. With twists, rotations detoxify and bring a neutral gear in transitions to other poses.
