ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Explore ways to effectively strengthen the back and lengthen the spine, and guide you in exploring your strengths and overcoming limitations.
We’ll also work towards some advanced asana in deeper backbends and how to come into them safely, respecting our individual bodies and looking at how they can benefit us physically and emotionally.
Backbends are also very beneficial as we are putting our bodies into the completely opposite position than our everyday activities such as sitting in front of the computer, driving, texting etc. They are a good way to reverse these habitual habits and great for opening up the lungs, stimulating the internal organs, squeezing the kidneys to help detoxification, along with developing a whole lot of strength.
