Backbends can be simultaneously the most challenging and satisfying asanas of our practice. In a typical yoga class, backbends are often situated just after the standing series and just before the seated series, leaving little time (or energy!) to explore all of the strengths and weaknesses these demanding poses have to offer.
In this two-hour workshop open to all levels, you will be guided through a spine-awakening warm up, followed by workshopping empowering poses to help strengthen your whole spine and core, increase flexibility in your shoulders and quadriceps, and open your heart. Leaving the muscle behind, we will end the workshop with a restorative and spine-focused yin practice that helps you calm your mind and your breath and restore your spine back to neutral. Come learn not only how to make backbends accessible for your body, but also how to strengthen your spine, increase your flexibility, and control your mind and breath to get the most out of your backbends!
