Founded on a detailed understanding of living anatomy and physiology, this approach to yoga is inherently therapeutic and is based on awakening the spine through an intelligent practice, which focuses on the breath and gravity.

The emphasis on the use of natural forces to undo the tension patterns in the living system radically changes our experience of ourselves and by working carefully with our body we canbring greater degrees of freedom to the spine and beyond.

Thisclassissuitable for all levels, from beginner to advanced, and is particularly appropriate for people overcoming previous injuries or health issues.

This is perfectly in line with a therapeutic approach to yoga.
