Creating Safety Workshop 3/3

The final class of the creating safety workshop.

Our sub-occipital muscles tends to hold a lot of stress because of the function it plays in keeping our heads upright as bipeds, and its association with our eyes. In this session, we explore an exercise to release tension in the sub-occipital muscles as we lean into the support of gravity, and find full body integration. In the session, we also explore movement across 3-dimensional planes, bringing awareness to our body’s mid-line and our anatomical structures.

Props required:

  • 1 yoga mat
  • 1 strap (or scarf)
  • 1 blanket
  • 1 yoga block
  • 1 weighted ball (or water bottle)
