Jim Bennitt: Folding Forward – Moving Down and Out

When we fold forward, we stretch the back body, strengthen the front body, and increase the energy that moves down and out called “apana” in Sanskrit. This energy is responsible for removing toxins and waste on both physical and mental levels. If this energy or vayu is not strong, we can consume a healthy diet and get proper exercise, but still be full of toxins and be the perfect environment for disease to grow. This workshop will consist of postures, breathwork, and meditation to help facilitate the downward flow of energy and is open to all levels.
