Focus: This weeks advanced class contains poses that help to contain your upper back and open your chest. The initial part of the class uses a belt looped around your arms to gain access to the thoracic spine. For many people this is a stiffer region of the back, more prone to lifting and bulging. Poses are chosen that help you to bring a more even balance to this region of your spine. The sequence then heads in the direction of spine releasing chair twists. This is a great class for helping to both boost energy levels and improve the health of your spine.
