A note from Riji: We finally have some more time to roll up our sleeves and get down with this beautiful Ghosh 84 practice. Four and a half hours to more consciously explore the complete series. For those with a foundation of steady yoga asana practice. For those who always ask me amazing difficult questions during the Friday 84. For those who have questions about the 84 and never ask them. For those who have long wanted to come to the 84. For those curious about the adaptation of their particular spine, body, mind, and heart to the specific alignment of a pose. For those who desire to understand and practice this classic system at a deeper, higher level. For those who can’t help but love the 84. For those yoga nerds who get strangely excited and happy about the prospect of sweating and getting ego-checked by universe for 4.5 hours of their precious Sunday with other yoga nerds, such as the teacher who asked for the 4.5 hours in the first place. Thank you, Lighthouse.

Backbending is one of the healthiest practices for human bodies. Understanding the subtleties of the body and the way energy flows in a backbend allows us to safely access our range of motion while achieving a meditative state. Because the spine is intrinsically connected to the nervous system, healthy backbends results in better posture, mobility and overall health as well as better brain-body connection and a clearer mind.

The art of handbalancing is a linear quality of movement accompanied by an open, focused state of mind where we direct energy in specific directions to attain a state of balance while the body is supported on the hands, elbows, and on the head. Focussing on the foundation of handbalancing makes the introduction to this art form suitable for beginners and experienced practitioners. Attendance both days is not required, but highly encouraged.
