The human spine is remarkable. It bends this way and that and is our true core, from which all movement emerges. Too often we only notice the spine when it is unhappy. In this practice we will celebrate our serpentine center. Combining exploratory movement and asana we will navigate the spine’s versatility and strength. We’ll wake it up!
Cited by Yoga Journal as “one of yoga’s most compelling and distinctive voices”, Barbara Benagh’s way of practicing yoga asana has evolved into an inquiry that draws attention more to the path than the destination. She has also slowed the practice way down, allowing for a flow that offers an opportunity to dwell in the potent sensation of action, reaction, and adaptability in an increasingly nuanced way.
Barbara's style is unhurried, alignment-based and rich with story. Her voice and cues carry students into the deep currents of movement that ripple through the whole body on the rhythm of breathing and the echo of the body’s memory of its aquatic origins in the sea.
