As we go deeper in our yoga practice it is important to understand how to use our bandhas known as locks.

The bandhas help to gain control of our energetic body and direct our flow of energy creating a sense of lightness
and ease. Postures like arm balances and inversions help us to understand how to use our bandhas and manage our energy. These practices will guide us towards a pranayama practice helping us to understand how to direct Prana,
our life force into areas that are dull and need to wake up.

In this practice, Joan will unpack the mystery of the bandhas as we explore techniques that can guide you deeper into your core muscles and breath.

There will be a brief discussion before we move into a practice incorporating core exercises, arm balances, and handstands.

Open to all levels, these poses can be fun and uplifting when practiced in a safe contained environment which Joan will provide.
