Intelligent and Profound
Spend two hours taking your backbends to a deeper level while keeping your spine happy and safe.
Your spine is an incredible combination of strength and flexibility, providing us with structure and suppleness. Without intelligent maintenance, backbends can feel vulnerable on lots of different levels: bending back through the spine, opening up the chest, trusting your body to support your range of motion.
In this workshop, you’ll get to grips with different alignment philosophies. You’ll also learn which muscle systems are necessary for support and how to activate them – all to keep your spine happy and safe whilst you practice.
From this more profound understanding of your body, we’ll play with new backbends. Allow yourself to ‘deepen’ your poses from an informed and supported place.
A fun, and smart workshop that celebrates the human body. Open to all levels.
