Monterey Yoga Shala presents a Spinal Release Yoga Workshop on Saturday, March 7, 1:30pm-3:30pm, taught by Elaine Oyang. Please register in advance here.
Our spine and pelvis are a central part of our being. Together, they allow us to stand upright, protect our spinal cord and important reproductive organs, and allow for a wide range of motion through the trunk of our body.
This workshop is an introduction to Spinal Release Yoga (SRY), a restorative form of yoga therapy that comprise of strategic and nonconventional forms of yoga asanas to effectively release deep muscles attached to the spine and pelvis. The concept of SRY is constructive rest to allow these deep, persistently tight muscles to return to their neutral, relaxed state.
