Scaravelli, Yoga, Workshop, Spine, Breath, Catherine Annis, Whitespace Wellbeing, Milton Keynes, UKOur spine is a spectacular piece of engineering.  With 33 interlocking bones, 24 moving vertebrae and 139 synovial joints, it has an amazing capacity to respond and react to our every movement.  In yoga our spine is at the heart of our practice – it’s a constant element in each pose, providing, as one of the central nadis – both the channel for our breath and the anatomical focus as our midline.  It is both the physical and psychological centre of ourselves.

During this practical yoga workshop we’ll learn more about:

  • the anatomy of the spine
  • its role as housing and protector of the central nervous system
  • how the spine responds to movement
  • the delicate articulations which occur during each breath

Finally, we’ll explore the central question:  does the spine respond to the movement of the breath?  Or is the flow of the breath initiated by the movement of the spine itself?

Join Catherine for a day of subtle yet deep and absorbing explorations, in which we increase our awareness and understanding of breath and spine, and how together they form the heart of our yoga practice

Suitable for all levels
