Lisa West: This is Spinal Tap. Friday Night


Lisa West gave a lecture on the major muscles, bones and nerves of the low back and pelvis region. She even weaved in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd chakras. I was totally delighted by her restraint. She kept to the major players and allowed it to be simple but complete.

Then she took us through a practice to draw our awareness more into our anatomy. IN each posture she used the anatomical terms so we could feel everything.

All Fours
baby navasana play
hand to big toe pose with twist
knees to chest
spinal twist

Lisa got a bit set up cuz the clock in the studio is an hour fast so she ended an hour early. Seemed to be fine, though. Everyone was tired and seemed to have taken in enough. We usually keep the first evening workshop to 2 hours, so all must have been in sync.
