healing the back, freeing the spine yoga workshop

Experience the lightness of body by freeing the ingrained tension in the spine and back

yoga workshop

with Gonca Alban

''The liberation of the upper part of the body produced by the acceptance of gravity in the lower part of the body is the origin of lightness, and dancing is its expression'' ~ Vanda Scarevelli

Tension in neck and shoulders and back pain can result from bad posture, lifestyle choices, habitual patterns of holding ourselves or moving, tight hips and legs, stress, anxiety, sadness, old traumas, emotions we have not yet dealt with or let go of. These tensions limit free movement and flow of energy throughout the body and cause physical discomfort as well as conditions like depression, headaches, lack of energy, lethargy, lack of confidence, etc.

During this workshop we will work on releasing and letting go of these ingrained tensions by learning to draw back into the spine to give our joints, bones and tissues more space to open up and breathe and by using a combination of gentle and strong poses, as well as flowing movements and breath work.

In this workshop we will aims to:

  • create deep relaxation and release around the spine, back and neck through a combination of gentle and strong poses, flowing movements, grounding and breath work;
  • help participants to experience the feeling of freedom and space that can be experienced in the body through our yoga practise;
  • offer suggestions of how to expand the lightness, space and achieved during the practise into our daily lives, both in terms of movement and posture, as well as in our attitudes towards daily events and challenges.
