Backbends, a.k.a. “Heart-Openers” – you either love them or hate them. Flexi people love them, but need more core. Stiff people hate them, but actually could really use them. In this workshop we will look at how different body types approach backbends differently, why we backbend and how to do this safely, confidently and with control. We will look at 10 backbend poses in depth, with beginner to advanced variations shown for each, warm up sequences to get the most out of your bend, and how to use various props to expand more and go deeper in your practice.

Throughout the course we will look at:

•Warm-up sequences for backbends
•About the spine
•Why backbend?
•Things to look out for (contraindications)
•How body type affects your practice
•Breakdown of common backbend poses we encounter
•Modifications (stage of evolution of the poses)
•How to use props like yoga blocks and Straps and various other props to facilitate and deepen your practice
•Learn how to breathe in backbends
