Downward Dog Yoga Workshop
With Julie Burtis
February 25th, noon-2pm
In describing dog pose, B.K.S. Iyengar states that “the abdominal muscles are drawn toward the spine and strengthened. As the diaphragm is lifted to the chest cavity, the heartbeat is slowed down. This is an exhilarating pose.”
Is your dog pose feeling less than exhilarating? Without the correct support from the abdominals and hip muscles, the weight of the body can fall onto the arms. This can result in a pose that lacks stability and feels stressful to the shoulders. In this two-hour workshop, we will explore ways of integrating core strength with this popular asana. Please bring a foam roller to this workshop if possible. Foam rollers are not required but will be helpful for certain exercises. A few will be available to borrow.
Please preregister. All levels welcome!
