Spinal Health & Vibrational Sound Intensive with Bala & Santiago

The vertical nature of the spine is like an energy super-highway. It aligns our central nervous system with the vertical energy flows of the universe. In this special 3-hour intensive we will release back tension, take greater care of your posture and explore the six degrees of freedom in your spine. When we have healthy movement of the spine, in all of its dimensions, it allows for a continuous flow of energy for our optimum physical, emotional and spiritual health.

Bala will lead you through a yoga routine consisting of poses and sequences based on Hatha and Yin yoga, while Santiago will create a vibrational space through live instruments that will help in stretching, strengthening, relaxing and rejuvenate your spine. Yoga is the fountain of youth. You’re only as young as your spine is flexible.
