It's official-- I'm moving to Birmingham, Alabama. It's been a hard decision and I've oscillated between total heartbreak about leaving Asheville, NC (which will always be home) and some major excitement at all the new opportunities in a new city. In case you didn't know, Birmingham is called the "Magic City" and I plan to find and take advantage of all the magic it has to offer.
I will be teaching a few special events before I leave town:
Better Backbends Workshop
One Center Yoga
April 26th, 1-3pm
My students often hear me jokingly say in my classes that "Backbends are like candy." It's true-- they can create the same childish, giddy feeling. For many, however, a backbending practice is intimidating and scary. If that's you, PLEASE come to my "Better Backbends" workshop at One Center Yoga and learn how to safely approach a backbending practice with helpful alignment techniques and proper sequencing. You too can experience the joyous, energetic rush that comes from expanding through the front of the body!
