Uplift Your Practice ~ Explore the Core Body with Amy Cooper
We will explore our body’s core supports also known in yoga anatomy as Bandhas, or “locks”, and embody them as “lifts”; We will further integrate the body’s deep myofascial core which originates in the soles of the feet (pada Bandha) and travels up the body center.
Come explore your East-West anatomy and what arises when you enliven your core body in standing, balancing & inverted poses, as well as pranayama & meditation.
