Let’s Twist Again

The twisting action helps the muscles to relax and when the twist is released, the areas that were involved become flooded with fresh blood and nutrients. Symbolically, twists keep avidya (spiritual tunnel vision or delusion) at bay. They help you to stay present with everything around you, keeping your inner vision clear. This can help you to stay present and focused throughout life’s constant changes.

So no matter what your age or fitness passion is (e.g. running, golf, weight lifting, or yoga) this workshop will benefit you.  During this workshop you’ll learn the benefits and practice techniques for becoming more flexible and stable.
