What is it? It is a mind/body practice that evolved from the many years of yoga practice of two teachers – you can read about them and the practice here. In general terms, it is a practice and physical alignment that challenges us to be strong AND open. It is dynamic and functional. It is challenging to learn and the benefits are worth the effort.
One of the reasons the practice is challenging, is that it asks us to question and then try out new alignments for every part of the body. It takes most people about 10 sessions to get a beginning understanding of this new alignment. The second challenge is that the new alignments can open places we have been closed for a long time. This can stir emotional release. This can be uncomfortable….. and when on a path of growth, so worth it. It is not just a practice you do while on your mat, but one you take with you into the world.
Amy Wallace started practicing Bowspring in 2015. She stepped into a class one afternoon, experienced the opening that was so in alignment with her quest for growth, that she continued practicing regularly. Since that time, she started teaching Bowspring to her pregnant and postnatal clients, with positive results and then entered the process to become Certified in the approach. In 2021, Amy became Certified in the Bowspring Alignment through Global Bowspring and she continues to study and practice daily.
