Workshop: Backbending Your Entire Spine with Jared McCann
Beginning with a strong vinyasa, this 2 hour practice & workshop focuses on backbending techniques designed to heal, open, and strengthen your entire spine.
The opening vinyasa sequence includes abdominal exercises, standing postures, and inversions. After the warm up, we will flow into classical backbending postures with an interactive lecture focusing on alignment and technique. Jared will focus on explaining bandhas (energy locks) in the pelvis and abdomen to enhance stability and awareness. We will also discuss the function of hips, shoulders, abdominals, and limbs in creating a strong and supported backbending practice. The workshop ends with exercises that unwind the spine, savasana, and meditation.
This class is designed for all levels. Beginners are welcome!
Ecstatic Kirtan with Madhuri Pura Das
Welcome back Madhuri Pura Das for another evening of heart warming kirtan. Kirtan is an ancient form of chanting meditation, accompanied by musical instruments and rhythmic drumming, bringing the audience to its feet in the joy of singing, clapping, and dancing with pure devotion.
