In this power class the sequence will focus on preparing your body for deeper heart opening/backbending asanas. Backbends allow us to start opening the muscles in our torso that typically tend to hold and block energy from flowing freely. When we create space for the energy to flow, it moves up to our heart center allowing us to practice compassion for ourselves and others. There will be attention to the lower chakras that lead up to the 4th energy wheel, Anahata, heart chakra. Balancing our ability to give and to receive compassion. Class will end with a longer help restorative pose.
