ATT 411: Upper Spinal Release

Delve into heart openers like never before! Let new poses, adjustments and variations make significant changes through your upper spine and dissolve the knot behind your heart, which heals your neck and shoulders. Go back to your students with supported and active poses for this problem area.

Dive into the second half of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, describing how to maximize your inner experience as well as avoid the potholes along the path. Most importantly, you'll gain tools for opening the connection between head and heart.

“I have never taken a teaching this deep and also this deeply satisfying.  I am excited to bring this back to my community.”

Text studied: Yoga Sutras with commentary by Swami Nirmalananda.
