As we age things tend to get stuck, both in our perspectives and in our bodies. In yoga, rotated poses can help get us unstuck. Twisting is beneficial for our spines and our digestion, and helps to balance our physical energy. Such poses can also change our perspective from one point of view to another as we twist. In this class we learn the basics of healthy rotations to aid in cleansing our organs, reinvigorating our spine, and refreshing our perspectivebecause where you look matters.
Yoga is the art and science of aligning the mind, body and spirit to live a richer and more authentic life. It promotes increased awareness, strength and flexibility while reducing stress and anxiety. Yoga may also decrease pain related to common problems such as lower back, hip or shoulder injuries. YOGA IN PRACTICE is led by master instructor Stacey Millner-Collins of Columbia, South Carolina, who first began the practice in 1994 as a way to unite a dedicated physical discipline with a spiritual one. The series is designed to teach the foundations of yoga to the at-home student, and to encourage a daily yoga practice that is more than simply physical exercise. Each episode focuses on a universal theme, such as "courage" or "the art of slowing down," and includes basic meditation and breathing techniques, further reducing the stress and anxiety associated with modern life.
