Backbends – Mastering the Basics : 4 Week Technique Workshop

Beautifully designed to provide support and a wide range of movement, the spine has a unique feature, and that is the ability to sit, stand, and walk, with the head, neck, and trunk in vertical alignment. 
Backbends are tremendous postures and one of the most exhilarating asanas to practice.  They develop flexibility, strengthen, realign and increase the mobility and structural integrity of the entire spinal column. They align the pelvic region, stretch and strengthen the legs, boost energy levels while inspiring self-confidence, courage, and vitality.  Backbends can also teach us to be more patient with ourselves by accepting our limitations and using them as a guide to move deeper by unlocking an inner intelligence. 
Each week, In this workshop series, we will be practicing and incorporating fundamental alignment techniques and actions to incorporate into a series of back bending posture,  learning how to energetically and intuitively open restricted areas of the body to safely deepen these asanas.
