About the Event
Twisting poses, when performed skillfully, infuse the body and mind with vitality and well being, and assist in releasing enormous amounts of tension. They are traditionally associated with toning and rejuvenating the abdominal and pelvic organs. With regular practice the entire spine becomes more flexible, the upper back, neck, and hips move more freely, and these areas are nourished and strengthened by increased circulation. In this workshop join senior teacher, Betty Roi, and explore supine, standing and seated twists.
Betty Roi has been studying and practicing yoga since 1985 and teaching internationally since 1989. Her teaching is inspired by her extensive experience in Iyengar, Astanga and Anusara yoga, and Buddhist meditation. Betty’s classes blend these traditions into an asana program of rich self-exploration and discovery. Her classes emphasize healthy postural alignment, balanced with breath awareness and mindfulness. She seeks to inspire her students to experience a deep connection with life and themselves, and to recognize their own beauty and goodness. Through her study and application of the philosophical wisdom of yoga, she has an understanding of the yogic process towards liberation, equanimity of mind and openness of heart.
