Twisting poses are often the best way to untie both physical and psychological knots. Forward bends, side bends, and backbends bring relief, but twists really get to the core of your tension. Only twists can effectively stretch the deepest layer of back muscles -- the small ones closest to your spine. The more you practice twists, the more you realize they don't just release tightness, they also dissipate the frustration, anxiety, or fear that's often behind physical tension. On many levels, twisting is more about what you let go of than what you accomplish. Space limited to to 25 people. Cost is $25 per person. Saturday, March 16, 2013, at 2pm-3:30pm.Presented by Juanita Monaghan.
