Love Your Belly
Limited Capacity seats available

Let’s start by clearing up some of the confusion around our bellies.  Many of us have been taught to hold the belly in or to work the external “cosmetic” muscles in order to get rock-hard washboard abs.  Healthy muscles are springy and elastic.  They have resilience and the ability to both contract and release.  Learn exercises to strengthen your deep internal muscles, support digestion, and stabilize your skeleton.    Embody the deep wisdom of Uddiyana, learning to draw the belly in and up, under the rib cage to release pain and tension in the low back.  Play with fun and silly Nauli, or “butter churning” and feel a deep massage and release in your abdominal muscles.  Heat it up with Agni Sara, pulling the fire of your pelvis up into your heart.  Brighten and relax from the inside out with sweet, soothing Agni Raj breath.  Abdominal exercises will be interwoven with asana practice to include sun salutations, standing poses, arm balances, inversions, back bends, and hip openers.  Variations and modifications will be offered and demonstrated for all levels of experience.  Practice working from your core, and movements will become graceful, fluid and easy.  Learn to love your belly!
