Building Strength Softly
You don’t need to push harder to get stronger! Usually we associate strengthening with firming, but instead of firming, we can soften into our strength. When we are tense, adding pressure does not build strength, it creates more barriers. In this yoga and qi-gong fusion class, we discover ways to find strength and openness by softening away from pressure, tightness or tension. This accessible but strengthening class is great for anyone who feels they are a bit tight in their shoulders, hips or back. Whether a beginner or advanced, you will discover some new sensations in your yoga practice here. This is mainly a yoga class, with some qigong movements incorporated periodically. You’ll need two blocks, a strap and a bolster.
