8:00am – 11:30am | Free the Four Corners: Back bending Emphasis
The hips and the shoulders– sometimes known as the four corners of the body– are crucial for creating easeful backbends regardless of how bendable you are. This class will work to create strong work in the arms and legs to mobilize the hips, shoulders and spine so that beautiful bends emerge. Expect to use props, to build poses progressively, and to spend some time upside down in handstands and forearm balances. Christina has allotted extra time to this session to provide ample time for explanations, demonstrations, and preparation.
1:00pm – 3:30pm | Soothe Yourself: Hip Opening/Forward Bending Emphasis

Expect to take what Christina calls a “trip around the hips” and work the hip joint in creative and challenging ways.
