Class Description

Here's a Jivamukti practice to open the heart and refine your backbends. Start by bringing your breath and awareness to tight places in the body. Then get grounded with malasana (garland pose), and engage with mulabandha (root lock) for the entire practice. With guidance on the flow of your breath, this vinyasa sequence moves through a range of postures, emphasizing backbends, with options offered to make the more advanced postures accessible to all levels. The practice ends with a short meditation and a relaxation in shavasana.
