Deepen your Breath and Free your Spine

Our vertebral column whirls, meanders, twists, bends and spirals, turning itself, us and everything upside down. When there is enough or too much flexibility in it, we look for the stable, the pillar, the support and the straightening, as efficiently as possible, with just the right amount of effort. Let your spine breathe.

Open Level means we approach our anatomical conditions in attuned warm-up exercises and through a new understanding find our way to more complex asanas (body shapes) such as twists and possibly Urdva Dhanurasana (bridge). A Surya Namaskar (sun prayer) will accompany us throughout the week to bring all vitality back into the spine in the repetition of forward and backbends.

Spirals, waves, circles and figure eights help us to better feel the connections between all the fascial systems that support us. Everyone can practice, from the fine to the grand and back to the fine.

Starting from the tailbone we discover Mula Bandha, the root locking. We learn to target the pelvic floor and perceive the connection to the centre of the body. Via the sacrum to the lumbar, thoracic and cervical vertebrae we breathe, tone, mobilise and strengthen.

I pay special attention to the connection between the pelvis and the spine and the head and the cervical spine. Spiraldynamik® specifically highlights the interaction of head and pelvis, as the poles in the spine, for alignment. Of course, we need alert feet and flexible, strong legs to give the individual vertebrae freedom in the right place (thoracic spine, ribs) and stability where it is needed (lumbar spine).
