Twists are a critical yet much misunderstood part of the asana practice. Twists increase the gastric fire, and thereby improve digestion (which is, according to Ayurveda, the root cause of practically all disease). Additionally, twists release the tiny inter-vertebral muscles, thereby releasing tension all through the spine. In one half of the workshop, Aadil will teach the basics of twists, explaining their physical and organic effects. Many of us do arm balances as a part of regular practice. Aadil will explain and teach the necessary preparations required to prevent injury and develop balance and strength.
