This enlivening flow class and workshop will allow you to develop a deeper capacity to experience backbends as heart openers. Backbends are spacious and intoxifying, but only if the mind is willing to surrender and un-cage the heart. You’ll open up more and more throughout the class and move beyond what you thought was possible.
We will stir the spine through transitions that lift the vertebrae and melt the heart. This workshop will include introductory backbends to warm up the spine to safely prepare your heart and back for deeper challenging poses including Kapinjalasana, Urdhva Dhanurasasa II, and Dwi Pada Viparita Dandasana. (If you have no idea what those mean, come find out!) Cost $25 CEU’s available for Yoga Alliance registered instructors.
* Suitable for all yogis
