Yoga X Spiraldynamik –  Lift Yourself Up

The Feet

The focus of this spiral dynamic yoga workshop is the connection of the feet with the whole body. With the help of basic anatomical knowledge, the feet are mobilised and strengthened at the same time, leading to an exploration and new discoveries of the whole body. A workshop for everyone, looking for relaxed stability.
