Imagery for a healthy, strong & flexible spine with Franklin Method Educator Ann Teachworth
The spine is a masterpiece of design and function. Containing over one hundred joints plus associated muscles and ligaments, the spine allows incredible movement and stability, strong support and flowing flexibility.
And yet most of what we hear and say about the spine is bad news: it’s stiff, tight, sore, inflexible, herniated disc. Much of our approach to spine health is about controlling and containing rather than really understanding and enhancing its healthy, dynamic movement.
Does your spine feel energized, flexible, and radiant in your yoga practice? Do you experience its dynamic 3-dimensional motion as you walk, run, or breathe? What if we could experience our spines as dynamic, flexible, energized, and healthy in yoga and daily life?
In this Franklin Method workshop, we’ll use embodied anatomical study to get to know our spines and understand its unique design and many essential functions. Through this process, you will learn to improve flexibility, strength, and stability in your yoga practice and life. Experience dynamic alignment, easy, lifted posture and a calm, present mind!
