Safer Back bends, Release to Twists, Relaxing into Meditation – over 60’s

We will look at the 4 steps to safer back bends:

  1.   Mula Bandha & Core
  2.   Tuck tailbone engage glutes
  3.   Counter poses are your friends
  4.   Wrapping up – exiting back bends safely, ask questions

I’ll be discussing key points to help protect your back during your yoga practice.  Mantra for back bends, “Lengthen, lengthen, lengthen!”  A long spine is a happy spine!

Progressing into twists increasing spine mobility & back health, energising, neutralising, detoxifying, creating heat, releasing tension in the muscles of the spine, abdomen & ribcage.  Twists can also help you to de-stress, wonderful if you are dealing with stress or anxiety.  You will be releasing stored tension in the body as you twist which can have a positive effect on your mental state.  Double the benefit with slow, deep breathing.

Finally relaxing into Antar Mouna (Inner Silence/Meditation) – Tipping your toes into the 6 stages, helping to eradicate mental noise, induce peace, tranquility, one-pointedness & calmness.
