Backbends – Mastering the Basics : 4 Week Technique Workshop

Beautifully designed to provide support and 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 tools to move deeper by unlocking an inner intelligence. In this workshop we will learn fundamental alignment techniques and actions to incorporate in to a variety of back bending postures and learn how to energetically and intuitively open restricted areas of the body to safely deepen these asanas
