Happy Back with Barbara Benagh

For many of us, backbends are daunting. As one student told Barbara, “My approach to backbends is to not do them.” If this sentiment resonates then this workshop is for you! Inspiring backbends require patience and perseverance. With a bit of guidance and coaxing you too can sneak up on backbends to enjoy and benefit from them. Did you know that backbends could be therapeutic for the lower back? We’ll look at that too.

The Power of Slow Flow with Barbara Benagh

Modern life is a hurried affair. Let your practice become a sanctuary of slow, conscious movement that is soothing and, yet, very physical. Our muscles are challenged in a very different way when required to support action without any assistance from momentum. Treat yourself to a luxurious and potent afternoon.

Navigating the Asymmetric Body with Barbara Benagh

In the practice of hatha yoga much attention is paid to “right” alignment. One might think this is in the pursuit of linear symmetry, however, we humans are in a constant state of going with the flow and learning how to navigate a far more fluid hold on alignment. In this class the focus will be on moving with the inner currents that keep alignment from becoming overthought and rigid and, instead, become guides toward fluidly adapting to the form of asana. Spinal twists are particularly well suited for this exploration and will be given emphasis as Barbara encourages a re-thinking, of sorts, as we move and feeling these wonderful poses and go with the flow.
