In this comprehensive series, we’ll explore each asana category from the inside out: standing postures, forward bends, backbends, twists, inversions, and arm balances. With Kat’s expert advice, teachers and students alike will learn to breathe life into each pose, build a confident practice, and break through old grooves and habits.
Asana is so much more than the postures alone, and Kat reminds us that advancing in our practice requires inquiring into who we truly are.
