Core Awareness:

Support your spine with

a strong back and abdomen

The principles of ancient yoga emphasize maintaining the strength, flexibility and alignment of the spine as the foundation of good health. The spine is the central axis of the body. Everything in the body is in one way or another connected to the spine. When the spine and its muscles are kept strong, supple and healthy, the entire body has a stable foundation to rely on.

Mary regularly offers this two hour workshop in which participants will discover their personal proper alignment and the curvatures of their own spine. A series of asanas focused on developing and maintaining appropriate strength and flexibility of the spine will be taught and practiced. Modifications for individual needs will be made as required. Each participant will leave with a greater awareness of their personal alignment and a toolkit of asanas to develop and maintain proper strength and flexibility of their back.
