Finally, Yin Poses, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, Pranayama Strength, and Alignment Techniques, once done separately has evolved and “yoked” into a gracious, illuminating and necessary experience. This “go to” restorative practice, promises to eliminate back/body pain and restore you to a better life. As our posture deteriorates, joints become restricted and the difference between tense and weak muscles creates stress. These imbalances, stiffness and loss of motion lead to eventual pain signals throughout the body. Denese Cavanaugh, developed this passive, yet essential restorative practice to fulfill a purpose. For many years, her students have come to rely on this unique sequence that begins with the heart opener, at the 4th chakra which ironically controls contentment, ease and stability in our bodies. When this area is compromised, it drives a signal of tension and stress throughout the body, and before we know it, we are out of balance and blocked.
IPATH (Integral Postural Alignment Techniques) sessions involve breaking down these blocks, layer by layer. Students use yoga blocks and guided through 5-6 held restorative poses, and resistance balls are used to free connective tissue, that then release tight muscles, and therefore allow the bones and joints to align. Stillness, brings in light and awareness, which is essential to the effects of this “working”. With regular practice; flexibility and range of motion is restored, common pain is relieved and posture is improved. IPATH yoga to Explore, Renew, and Discover the essence of who you are.
The session is complete with a chakra sound bath.
