THE POWER OF THE HEART: BACK BENDING + HEART OPENING WORKSHOP
Just as you can practice opening your heart in your thoughts and emotions, you can also experience opening the heart space in the body. AND just as you can practice opening the heart space in the physical body, you can also practice opening your heart in interactions with others. One can help guide the other. Join Kelly Bond-Osorio in a practice of letting the heart lead. Following a thorough warm-up asana practice, we will explore ways to lengthen the front side of the body, opening the heart, as we balance both strength and surrender in the back side of the body. All levels are welcome as we learn how moving from the heart can enliven our practices, both on and off the mat!
