Session Description:

This is a 2 hour lecture/asana class dealing with the spine as a structure with 24 vertebrae, a sacrum and coccyx. Each segment rotates within three planes of rotation. The western spine unfortunately develops patterns of tension and patterns of collapse, and eventually joint pathology especially in the triad of the lumbar facets, sacroiliac and acetabulum joints. There are relative flexibilities// inflexibilities. The human biped form can benefit greatly from the Hatha Yoga skills of grounding, centering, and lifting. I will teach basic asanas from the biomechanical perspective of the segmentalness of the spine.
