REVIVING THE SPINE

with Noelle Rivet

"Yoga is the fountain of youth. You are only as young as your spine is flexible." -Bob Harper

In this workshop, you will discover a series of Kriyas designed to increase the flexibility of the spine and reduce back pain. Kriya by definition means action, this specific sequence will involve a dynamic combination of breath and movement expounding the stimulation of potential energy that lies dormant in the spine awakening the inherent consciousness within the human body and mind.

There are several factors that contribute to the development of back pain, in this workshop you will learn specific techniques used to help correct postural dysfunction and diaphragmatic breath work to reduce sympathetic nervous system firing, reducing tension and pain associated with the compensatory structures of the spine. Intertwined throughout the sequence you will learn about the philosophy of Kundalini Shakti, how to integrate the bandhas (energetic locks) and their association with the body's nerve plexus's also known as the chakras and discover the sensation of the Nadi's (pathways of energy within the body). Specifically, learning how to channel energy towards the Sushumna Nadi, or centre channel of energy through the breath to facilitate longevity and health of the spine.

This workshop is open to all levels of practitioners, no previous experience is required.
