http://www.melissawest.com In the second class of the beginner’s series we explore standing and standing postures. In these postures our feet are connected to the ground and our body is in an upright position. This is the active position we go out into and interact with the world. In this class we will explore what it is like to inhabit our bodies from this position. What is happening in our bodies? What stands out about our physical experience? What emotions are present? What thoughts move through our minds? What is it like to connect with our spirit from this position? We will also move our spines in all directions from flexion (forward bending), to extension (back bending) laterally (side bending) and rotationally (twisting). Standing offers a very different experience to gravity from the first beginners class in the series (the preparatory poses). This entire class will be experienced from the standing position.

Melissa West is a yoga instructor who helps people to surrender to peace in their lives by connecting to the vital energy within their body through breath, cultivating optimal functional movement by harnessing the power of gravity and increase overall mobility by creating more suppleness in the spine.
