What’s Up Dog? -- with Laura Ahrens
Saturday, October 6 (1:00 – 3:00 p.m.)
In case you were wondering, the comma was intentionally left out of this workshop title. What’s Up Dog isn’t just a cool way to greet your friend. Upward facing dog is so often misunderstood in practice that, as we dive deeper into our practice, we inevitably bump up against the question, “What’s Up Dog?”
Prepare to answer that question through a practice of small-but-tricky backbends that will include opening your thoracic (upper/rib-bound) spine, shoulder stability work, lumbar (lower) spine stability (and its BFF, core work), and wrist strengthening. And, of course, we’ll take a big old look at how to practice upward facing dog in a way that is architecturally and anatomically sound and can invite the feeling of strength and openness that the pose offers when it’s well aligned.
All workshops are non-refundable.
