Session Description:

Twisting or Lateral Poses are among the most challenging and valuable of asanas. They prepare you for Back Bends; they transition you from Back Bends. They are invaluable tools for fostering organic health (health of the internal organs). And of course, they mobilize the spine. Twists occur in Standing Poses, Inversions, Forward Bends, Arm Balances, even Back Bends.

Notes to Participants:

In this Session we will practice a variety of Twists, not only to obtain the physical/physiological  benefits, but to explore actions and subtleties that can deepen your experience.
