MOVING ENEGRY: Exploring Anusara’s 5 Universal Principles of Alignment  

October 28th: 12 – 3pm & 4pm -7pm (Kenny Graham)

October 28th: 12 – 3pm & 4pm -7pm (Chrissy Graham & Siri Cavanna)

On Saturday we will use standing poses, hip openers and forward bends to investigate how these principles can help us to ground and release long held tension. On Sunday we will explore how optimal alignment in arm balances and backbends reconnects us to our powerful centers, evoking the heart’s joyful unfolding…
