Alignment and Flow: Forward Bends and Twists with Bless Leone and Siobhan Sloane Seale

Starting with anatomy and alignment principles, we will teach you how to create more space in the sides and back of your body, allowing you more freedom in your twists and forward bends. You will learn a sequence of moving postures in a way that’s safe, strong, and builds confidence in your forward bends and twists. As we expand on the practice, the symbiotic relationship of these two groups of poses will help you to go deeper into each posture, laying the foundation for seated work. We will finish by breaking down each pose with a slow and detailed approach taking you into some uncommon and interesting postures! Why Alignment and Flow?  It is important to learn how to properly execute yoga postures before moving quickly through them. This allows your body to be safe, integrated, and grow stronger. Once you have established awareness in your practice it is beneficial for you to move in different ways so that the body and mind do not become stagnant. When you merge alignment and flow, strength and movement, a graceful balance emerges.
