Part 3 of our journey through the elements. A heart opening sequence working into safe backbends to develop space in this area, also building strength in the front and back of the core through yogic conditioning practices. We explore some essential yoga backbend poses, balanced out with forward folds and hip openers.

The Elemental Yoga Basics series is 4 classes to move through the elements. We work towards building strength and flexibility in the targeted elemental area, learning many of the main yoga poses and working with yogic conditioning moves. It’s as important to build strength as well as flexibility in our bodies - yoga is all about balance! This series is perfect for newer yoga practitioners as classes have less speed, more instruction and lots of variations. We always move with the breath, making our practice a moving meditation.

"Don't push yourself too hard in class. Always listen to your body and what it needs. Stop if you are in pain. Make sure you have a safe open place to practice and that you consult a health professional for advice on injuries, conditions or illness."
