This workshop provides you with all you need for the self-management of your spine, to relieve spinal pain, deepen your sensory body perception, enhance freedom of movement and improve your posture.
Through the sense of touch, you’ll journey inwards in a deeply meditative way as Karakrista guides you in the use of the practical and highly effective BakBalls* (a Physiotherapy therapeutic, treatment modality) combined with essential core training and Yoga asana for central alignment through your spine, mobility, strength and balance.
You’ll leave feeling massaged from the inside out, grounded in your body, loose and light!
With the use of balls you can really feel the restricted areas of your spine and control the exact pressure you need, utilizing your breath and conscious relaxation to bring hydration, blood flow, tissue release and pain relief. Doing this systematically through the spine deeply calms your central nervous system as your energy flow is liberated through multiple acupressure points, joints and myofascial connections.
Weaved throughout the class will be a sequence of focused abdominal activation and central alignment poses that Karakrista considers essential daily practice for the maintenance of our spinal health and the prevention of injury.
You’ll also rest deeply in expansive restorative poses specifically designed to bring balance to your spine.
BakBalls*, designed by an Australian Olympic Sports Physiotherapist, are scientifically designed to provide a therapeutic manipulative force directly onto the spin, accessing some of the most commonly painful areas and providing myofascial release.
The balls can also be applied to other areas of the body such as the buttocks, thighs, calves, chest and shoulder girdle.
When: Saturday 3rd March
Time: 2.30pm – 5.00pm

“I love my BakBalls. I’m possibly a little addicted to them! I love the feeling of being able to ‘touch’ and stimulate my spinal muscles and joints, holding the pressure for exactly as long as I need to feel relief. I regularly spend time massaging my spine as I relax before bed. These sessions ease any aching or discomfort in my lower back or thoracic spine and I’ve often noticed the next day that I feel a greater sense of vitality in my body as if I’ve received an energy healing session. I also feel stronger and lighter on my feet as I walk through the national park.” ~ Karakrista
