BYSJ Posture Workshop: Compression and Stretching

Saturday, September 16, 2023 – 12:30 pm-2:30 pm

Matt and Sarah Newman lead this posture workshop

This posture workshop will focus on forward bending: compression and extension as keys to your health

“Exhale breathing, suck your stomach in.”
“Roll forward like a wheel.”
“Throat choked.”
“Stretching your body down from the lower spine towards the floor.”

Do these words fill you with recognition of a favorite posture, or perhaps with confusion at something that is still a mystery how to do?

Meet the forward bends: compressions and stretches – some of the most beneficial postures of the Bikram Yoga series. They work deeply on the spine and internal organs of the body, and both require and create precision and clarity in the mind. (The subject and the object are the same: you.)

Join Matt, Sarah, and Kelly on Saturday, September 16, 2023, 12:30 – 2:30 pm, for a workshop to explore these postures – practicing them with satisfaction to gain all the benefits they offer. Anyone can do it, and everyone is welcome. 🤗

We will work with simple, preparatory exercises and a selection of postures to teach you easily understood and repeatable techniques that you can use to awaken your understanding and get the most from your 90-minute Bikram Yoga practice.
