About The Event
Backbends are some of the best things one can do to help offset the degenerative effects of gravity. They can help to sustain or restore mobility to the ribs, lungs, and breath, and liberate the diaphragm, which can help improve all organic functions such as respiration, digestion and elimination.
This workshop will explore backbends sequentially and progressively through asanas and pre-asanas necessary and even peripherally relevant. We will explore the inner workings of backbends to see how they can be safe and available to all levels of practitioners.
This workshop will focus on the various aspects of mobility, organization and stability that can help to make backbends not only accessible, but even blissful.
