Twisting for Detox w/ Heidi Hopkins
Twisting plays a vital role in maintaining our health. The twisting motion is important because it incorporates so many central points of the body. Yoga twists require the work of the abdominal muscles, oblique muscles, spine, neck, shoulders and pelvis. Each twist improves the strength and flexibility in all of these areas. Twisting provides two distinct and essential benefits; the reduction of low back pain as well as detoxifying and cleansing the organs and tissues.
This class will flow with an emphasis on twisting. Hips, shoulders and the low back will also be addressed. Great yogis say we are only as young as our spine. Treat yourself to a detoxifying hour of movement, alignment and meditation.
