Improving your Downward Dog

Do you ever wonder where to focus on in your Down Dog? Or how your Down Dog looks?

In this workshop well look at the natural curvature and structure of the spine, and how a natural & supportive spine influences the position. You’ll discover where, why and how to stabilise and strengthen your spine.

Expect to get personal hand-on guidance & to work with a partner or group. Its a lot of fun to learn from & help each other to see how you can create a supportive alinement by different adjustments. I always get lots of Aaahs and Ooohs when students see the improvement happening in another students body.
