Review: Back Care Basics Yoga Workshop
by Jeni Bonano
Last weekend I attended the Back Care Basics For Bellydancers Workshop taught by the lovely Arya Pretlow. Having suffered with chronic back pain for many years; pain which sometimes impedes my range of movement when practising bellydance moves, I was excited to attend and hopefully learn ways to deal with my back problems, and hopefully protect myself from further injury. Of course, with Arya teaching the class, I fully expected it to be fun, and it didn’t dissapoint, but what I wasn’t expecting was the level of Arya‘s expertise in both yoga and the human anatomy, especially in relation to belly dancers.
Arya is a delightful, knowledgable teacher and I highly recommend attending her next workshop. My only complaint?…….the workshop wasn’t long enough!
Arya will be announcing her next yoga workshop with Deep Roots Dance soon. Watch this space for more information!
